What Triggers Anxiety & What Medicine Can Be Taken For It?
ive never really understood what triggers the anxiety. or what medicine is good for it. and how do i explaine it to my doctor without sounding nuts lol.and can the medicine be bought or does it have to be prescribed.
it can help to take a note to doc and ask him to read it, docs have heard everyting before and cant be shocked
searching for causes or triggers of anxiety or panic attacks is old fashioned and seldom helped much but took lots of time and expense
the modern approach is to accept that anxiety and panic attacks will happen, often when not expected, and to learn in advance how to cope and work your way thru them this is called CBT
valium and perhaps an antidepressant often help, an ordinary doc should prescribe them, IMO seeing a psychiatrist isnt worthwile
I don't seem to have tiggers, anxiety just seems to be a part of me, I don't get panic attacks anymore, but I sure haven't forgot how they feel.
I think learning to cope with your with your A/P, and maybe medication to help you to cope is your best bet. I am on Zolft and Klonopin, which is really helping me. Medications have to be prescribed by your doctor, and don't worry s/he won't think your nuts, A/P is a real illnes, not a nutty thing. IMO I don't much care for phsyciatrists, but a therapist could be very helpful in teaching you how to cope.
I hope this helps somewhat, and you get some help soon.
