Amxiety Meds

Amxiety Meds

Good morning!!! I know everyone is different, but, I was wondering what anxiety med seems to work best for most?? I've been on some before one helped and one made it worse. I'm making an appointment with my doctor to discuss medication but just wanted to see what most people think has worked best.

Klonopin. For starters. If you are prone to anxiety attacks. Then Xanax

I take generic Lexapro. No long term side effects, or short term either, for that matter.

Interesting to hear that the docs are suggesting marijuana. Haven't heard that one yet and I also live in VA. Many people I know take Lexapro, as I do. My doctor also prescribed Wellbutrin for me, another one that several people I know also take. It seems to me that the combination is working. Of course, depression seems to be logical in this situation, doesn't it? Frequent doses of laughter and sunshine are also helpful. I wish you well.

That's a good question Tb. I would like to know some thoughts too. I live in Virginia and marijuana became legal back in July here.... So when I bring up meds for my nerves because of all these lovely diseases.... To my Drs... They tell me to try marijuana.
