Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
I am glad you have reached out for help. I will do my best to help you. Tell me more about your life situation. history, relationships, etc. What does seem to trigger these attacks? What have you done successfully to relieve them in the past? How have you manage to survive this long? What is your greatest hope of the future?
I too have suffered from anxiety in the past. The only ting that worked for me was an adjustment in medication. I would first of all suggest you visit your psychiatrist and seek a change in prescription. I imagine they will attempt to avoid xanax because of its side affects and addictive qualities. There are other good meds these days that are much safer. Other than that, i would suggest a change in diet and activity. find a hobby that you enjoy and keeps you active. cut out caffeine and sugar, and drink lots of water. Does that make sense. please let me know if you have questions.
