  1. Medication
    I'm a new user here and just looking to read people's thoughts and experiences on giving up medication. I've been on Lexapro for 5 years and tapering off at present. My anxiety has come back a bit and I feel a bit awkward sometimes...anyone have a similar experience? Cheers
  2. Coping With Social Anxiety
    Right, let me start off by explaining my situation. I have severe OCD which I have had since I was about 12 (8 years), I suffer from SA (obviously) and I'm also beginning to show symptoms of ASPD (anti-social personality disorder) which is apparently linked to SA and also schizophrenia (although...

    Hi, I'm going to the psychiatrist tomorrow and I want to know what I should ask for. So what medication do you think is the best for SA?
  5. Introductions and Welcomes
    I do not have a social anxiety disorder, (at least, not that I know of) but my uncle Brian is so bad I feel the need to at least understand why he always looks like a startled rabbit. First off, we never see him unless it's a big holiday, or we get lucky and he darts out of his room when we...
  6. Coping With Social Anxiety
    I have had SA for a while now and have faired pretty well with the symptoms, but I am also really good at avoiding social situations that make me nervous. I am a very social person so this can be very hard for me. My biggest issue is the side affects of my SA: racing heart, nausea, and...
  7. Medication
    Another new medication for depression and anxiety.... Let's see. In 1995 I took my first anti-depressant and many after that until 1999 then I took Effexor. It seemed to work only took away my appetite. I did not want to eat. It didn't help my SA much. In 2004 I stopped taking Effexor and did...
  8. Medication
    I've been asking around for weeks to verify a statement a "Top Contributor" on Y!A made about obtaining free mental health medication in the US, but nobody will address the issue. How does one obtain medication in the first place? Will they be told what medication they should get? And what if...
  9. Medication
    Hi ya'll, I'm thinking about going on medication for my SA because it seems like my life is actually getting worse as far as anxiety. Sure there have been some ups but they are nothing compared to the constant downs. I don't have insurance at the moment or a regular doctor so I was wondering...
  10. Health, Nutrition, Exercise and Supplements
    As I am preparing to go off to Uni. my mom comes into my room and slips me a bottle. So, I tell her. "But this says anemia, I don't have aneamia." Then she tells me to read on :" It also says its good for nerves." So, I just took my first dose of Dr. Chase Blood & Nerve tonic. I know that I...
  11. General Discussion
    Nutritional companies are making broad, unqualified claims about supplements they are trying to sell. Websites such as the Tahoma Clinic are a good example. They target people looking for a quick, easy solution to their problem or people looking to enhance themselves in one way or another. The...
  12. Medication
    My Phyciatrist prescribed me Zoloft. Can anyone who has taken it tell me about their experience with it? Did it help much? What side effects did you have on it?
