    I was just wondering how many of us here used medication to deal with n* or anxiety or just did the best with our natural methods. I don't like taking medication for anxiety because I want to go through all my emotions and be fully aware of them so that I learn how to deal with them, and I don't usually take anti emetics because I know I would just start eating them like skittles every day and I don't want to become reliant. What about everyone else?


    Ooops sorry guys I pressed enter to fast and can't edit my poll!
    My last option was going to be "I take many anti emetics when I feel ill"Edited by: x hannah x

    Just anti-depressants which help with both depression and anxiety.

    I take Wellbutrin for depression/anxiety & adult ADD. Seems to help all of those some - makes it tolarable anyway. I also have Lorazapam (Ativan) for when I really freak out. I have also taken ginger, when I have an upset stomach. I think it helps a lot. In the past I've taken kava kava (not sure if they sell it anymore - but it was more effective than anything I've taken).


    I'm pretty open about being on meds if anyone wants my opinion. [img]smileys/smilies_04.gif[/img] I've also tried Lexapro, Cellexa, Zoloft - think that is it. ??

    I'm on Celexa for anxiety, I've been on it since I was 9. But I've recently cut back to taking only half the pill and I don't seem to be getting any worse. Which is great! I don't like taking it though... the doctor's making me.Which is stupid. I believe that anxiety is all in the head and that no medication can help.


    I used to take Xanax whenever I had a panick attack but it never helped. My panic attacks were always so severe that no medication would help. I'd just get worse and more n* *knocks wood* I don't get panic attacks much anymore. The last time I had one that I can really remember was umm... July. which is good for me, since i usually average about 1 every 2 months.

    I used to be on antidepressants. I have developed an allergy to them now though. They swell my toung and throat. I have fibromyalgia so I take vitamins for that. I have xanax for sleep and for panic attacks. I have anti-emetics for n*. I will wait at least 20 minutes after taking the xanax if I feel n* before I take the phenergan. I try to make sure it is real n* not phantom or panic induced be for taking that.
