    They can help some.with the physical effects of anxiety, but no they cannot resolve the reasons for anxiety. To resolve issues in the long term therapy is the best option.

      Bear in mind they aren't guaranteed to work, and can initially make symptoms worse. I prefer anxiety. Meds aren't for me. They can work for some but don't look on them as a long term solution, best to look for therapy to help I would say. Its time better spent

    I've had "skipped beats" for years, sometimes during extreme physical workouts. I've learned to accept those twinges of fear, realizing if I let my mind create fear, it will breed, fear creating fear building to an anxiety attack, fear breeds fear. You are in control. Sometimes I laugh out loud, if I slip into a situation, then in my mind, I know what could happen, so, why not tell yourself, it happened, and everything is fine now, why go through that thing that really can't destroy you, even if you think it can, it can't. Mind bluffing is all it is, accept that fact.

    Yes you may have a panic dissorder. I have the same thing , heart pounds for no reason and when it subsides I`m drained. Go to your doctor you may need anti-depressants. They also control panic attacks . I am on them and I could`nt function without them now. Ask for some tranquillisers for the short term.as well  My doctor allows me them as he knows I won`t abuse them. But each doctor is different and they can be addictive. First step, see a doctor please :-)

      Agreed always see a doctor, what works for one person may not for a other and everyone's very different when it comes to treatment. I don't get palpitations really, my panic attacks feel as if I might pass out or lose control, quite dizzy and suffocated and a lump in the throat.

    Hi Ambee, anxiolytic medicines definitely help to reduce symptoms. However you need to take medicines under guidance of your GP and psychiatrist along with psychotherapy. Please note that anxiety can arise due to stressful life, so please focus on changing lifestyle to reduce stress. If you are a smoker and taking alcohol, please avoid smoking and alcohol consumption.

      Hi Ambee,

      You can try low dose antidepressant drugs like ‘Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors’ (Fluoxetine, Paroxetine) or ‘Serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors’ (SNRIs) (venlafaxine, duloxetine) for anxiety. These drugs help to increase serotonin level in the brain and they are effective in anxiety treatment. Please take these drugs under guidance of your GP.

      Beta blockers are also used in anxiety treatment to reduce symptoms such as rapid heartbeat, shaking, trembling and blushing. If you have prescribed Atenolol, it will definitely help you to reduce these symptoms.

      Have you done investigations for your enlarged lymph nodes? Please consult with your GP for it and take a treatment, it will also help to reduce your anxiety.

      Hello thank you for your repile.  

      I have the beta blocker but unsure on taking it as I've read bad reviews on net.  I brought some kalms as I perfer natural but I havnt tryed it yet as I wanted some reviews so been looking..  Have u tryed them before? 

      My lymph node is still there in my neck I feel it's gone smaller but it's next to. The neck muscle the doctors keep saying I.  Feeling the edge of muscle but I'm not. Convince I want another scan it's been bout 6 months I've felt it.  

      Sometimes I go bed and feel like I'm falling in my sleep and can't seem to settle as soon as I sort kids out and my body relax it kicks in sad

      I know its difficult but you should stop looking for reviews and looking for side effects. You will only convince yourself you are affected when you may not be. Rather than putting all your energy into looking for medication which to be honest will do you little good - especially long term, use that energy for therapy

      Hi Ambee,

      Beta blockers are definitely helpful in anxiety. Please do not look at their side effects and start taking them. You will get a symptomatic relief soon. Please try psychotherapy along with these drugs. It will definitely reduce your anxiety. As your GP is aware about lymph node enlargement, please do not worry; it may be due to local infection and your GP might have considered it while prescribing a treatment.
