I have been dealing anxiety since as long as I can remember. Just recently I have got through Conselling I am using relaxation technics which are working but only when I need to sleep. Not actually stopping me being anxious all the time. Also started to get palpitations even when I'm not feelin anxious also sharp pains. I feel like I've tried everything and nothing is working. Really don't want to try anti depressants is there any other medication that helps anxiety?

    Hi Ellie, I also have had anxiety for over thirty years and I have found that antidepresents have helped me the most of all the medications Ive tryed.

    You can start on a low dose and slowley incress it and at first youll feel a little worse but beleive me after the hump of getting ajusted to them you will feel like a new person. Im on imiprime 175 mill . Just saying they do work for anxiety.

    and for the sharp pain your getting heart pain is not sharp its dull . Also palpitations are one of the bigest symptoms of anxiety and they happen more offten in healthy hearts then in deseased hearts. YOu need to not fear them and they will get better. Ive had them for years and Im still here . Dont be afraid to try antidepressant. Hope this helps. Renee
