    Therapy offers relief with no side effects, there are no meds with no side effects. I stick to therapy, meds aren't worth it

    Hello. In my 25 plus years of anxiety, only two drugs gave me the best quality of life back. Effexor xr and cymbalta. No side affects. Cymbalta I was on since it came out and died on me and caused blurry vision last year.. Went off sadly. Effexor I was on years ago when it first came out with no side effects. Only changed due to Dr change and suggestion of new cymbalta. So here I am back on it again. Now. After trying in the past several mos.of Zoloft,Prozac,pristiq, and in the past I tried alot of older ones with no success just bad side affects. And iam med sensitive big time with many ER visits. Good luck

    Meds don't agree with me either. Lately i have been trying a healthy diet though and supplements. I take Fish Oil to help soothe my brain and make it easier to think. I also take Creatine Monohydrate with it which is meant for body building but it also makes the brain more relaxed and easier to think. I have just started taking amino acids and protien aswell but you have to remember to take a lot of carbohydrates with it otherwise it can make panic symptoms worse. Carbohydrates can be simple things like a bowl of cereal or brown rice, wholegrain bread. But all in all i found that fish oils, creatine and excercise work great to keep my mind relaxed on a daily basis. Oh and drink a lot of water too smile

    Oh and i know this sounds strange but drinking Chai Tea helps you to relax. It gets rid of anxiety, stress and deppression for a bit. Its great. I drink a cup a day.
