Before starting I must say I have very tiny experience with meds. I have SA and a sever anger problem. I've been taking risperdal for a week to combat the anger problem and i think it's working slightly. However I'm thinking of adding Prozac to for my SA but not sure if this will lead to bad results. Anyone know what can result from this... by Moses199

Hi all, I just wanted to ask this question about anyone taking medication right now and are experiencing ED. Could you live with it for the rest of your life if it meant a better life, minus that side effect?. Thanks in advance for all your feedback. by voodoochild16

So I've been on Lexapro for 4 months already. The doctor started me off on 5mg and now my dosage is 20mg. I feel like the drug has never worked for me and every time I saw my doctor and told him that, he just kept increasing my dosage rather than prescribing me something else. I just stopped taking my medication 2 days ago and haven't had any side... by RachB

Hello:) I've struggled with depression/anxiety for 15+ years. Currently on Bupropion + Prozac and this combo seems to be helping me so far. If I don't have to go out and meet people, I'm perfectly fine. But when I have to attend a social event, I feel super uneasy and often take Xanax. I think the root of the reason I'm apprehensive of social... by IreneIesu

So here is the deal. I have really bad social anxiety, panic attacks, and depression and before I could ever be correctly medicated I started self medicating. Long story short I finally found benzos and they work great for me, but because of my drug history no docs want to give them to me. They want me to take an anti depressant and buspirone, or... by weirdinpublic

Ok, so instead of offering me some counselling or even actually talking for more than 10 minutes, I get loaded up with meds. I know most here are adamantly against them. But does anyone have experiences with Elavil? Good or bad? Im hoping it doesnt make me gain a lot of weight as Im already a couch potato. by Megaten

Right now, I'm on 125mg of Zoloft and 2mg of Klonopin. The Klonopin is working wonderfully, but the Zoloft really has no effect. My pdoc was thinking about replacing the Zoloft with Buspar. Is anyone on Buspar? How does it work? Do you still have a benzo as a PRN? Any feedback is greatly appreciated. Thank you! by Gina_Marie

My GP had prescribed me fluoxetine 7 weeks ago. I started on 10mg for the first four days, then 20mg until I hit four weeks. Since then, my doctor has upped the dosage to 40mg. I haven't had any significant side effects, but I'm also not really feeling much difference in my anxiety either. I was told that it generally takes 2-4 weeks for... by squidgee

I want to try medication for the first time in my many years of SA suffering and I wonder if there is anything out there that you can take only in an anxiety attack situation and not on a every day basis. It would be great if I could just take something to take my symptoms away on the spot, or by taking it hours before I know that I am going to... by HugoC

Hi folks, I've been trying St. Johns wort for my anxiety, and have been on it for 2-3 weeks. On the positive side, I don't feel like it's doing any harm, but I really don't feel like it's doing anything. I have a good brand with a good potency and am taking the recommended dosage. I may go back to Sam-e. I had great luck, but... by ryan2022

Atarax I think is the brand name. It is an anti histamine sometimes used to treat anxiety. I just got this prescribed by a psychiatrist. I want something that works quickly to help keep blushing and sa down. Has anyone used this? I'm going to test it this weekend and push myself into some social situations that normally make me uncomfortable. by clarissa87

I get extremely lonely at night. I always remember feeling that way, even/ESPECIALLY when I was a little girl. I remember my mom working late most nights and me watching cartoons that I hated at all hours of the night just trying to pass the time waiting for her to come home. I was never one of those kids who had a curfew, or bedtime, or whatever... by xsawx

Two things have helped me. 1. Nardil. Extremely helpful, but the side-effects were so unbearable I had to quit. 2. Lamictal. What I am currently on. It was kind of an outside the box idea from my doctor because it is not typically prescribed for anxiety, but it has been like night and day for me. The side-effects for me are minimal for me,... by Arcade_Fire
