Anxiety Support Group

Anxiety is a physical condition marked by intense and persistent feelings of distress, fear, angst or dread. General anxiety caused by routine day-to-day stresses usually passes quickly and is experienced by almost everyone at one time or another. However, such feelings that linger over time and are very difficult to cope with, and which lack a clear cause, may indicate an anxiety disorder.

    Duloxetine

    My doctor is switching me from Paroxetine to Dulxetine for generalized anxiety disorder. I was wondering if anyone has had experience with Duloxetine and wishes to share. If it worked, side effects etc. Thanks.

  • I did a web search for social media websites for support groups. So here I am... I feel like I found gold! I have no one at my house who knows what its like to have depression and severe anxiety. I am on medication and was in therapy. But my insurance won't cover the therapy any longer this year! They tell you to get help and then take it away... I have a wonderful aunt and uncle who took...

    Hi everyone. I'm new to the site, but in need of some support. I've had problems dealing with my anxiety for a couple of years but aside from breaking out and some problems with eczima, I guess I was able to deal. This summer I had a fair amount of financial stress and following that was the death of my grandmother. We were close as a family and it has been hard to deal. I went to the doctor and...
  • Has anyone used beta blockers for anxiety? My doctor just prescribed it today and I'm shocked I never knew this was an option. I've been using Xanax as needed, which is sometimes 2-3 times a day, and sometimes I go weeeks without needing one. But even with Xanax, I have a hard time getting my heart rate down. It was sky high today which alarmed the doc and she did an EKG and all is well with my...

I just went up to 200 mg Zoloft and I take 2-4 0.5 mg tabs of Klonopin every day. I still feel...

    I have been advised to change my antidepressant from Citalopram to Sertraline. Does anybody else take this and does it work for them? Also are there are bad side effects?
