  • Best medication for social anxiety?

    I was wondering what the best medication for social anxiety for a sixteen year old would be? I have been on Zoloft before and it did not work too well.
  • Body and mond

  • Does this website really help with depression

  • Has anyone else felt Prozac loses its effectiveness after awhile? Unfortunately, I feel as though it is for me. If so, did you change to a different medication? What medication did you switch to?

  • How do you deal with anxiety-induced focus problems?

    Normally I'm a very focused individual but when I enter high anxiety times/situations (generally when I have a lot to do) I lose the ability to focus on anything for longer than a couple of minutes. This is very frustrating, and makes me even more anxious. Its a horrible catch-22, and I would like to know if anyone else has this problem and how they deal with it, besides the old deep breathing technique which has lost a lot of effectiveness for me.
  • I'm scared I might have DVT! (Deep vein thrombosis)

    I'm an 18 year old male and my leg has been hurting for like a week now a ton and sometimes I get chest pains to go with it. I know its bad to google symptoms with anxiety but I read and feel like I might have DVT (Deep vein thrombosis) My leg isn't swollen or feel hot to touch but it does hurt and I get chest and throat squeezing and pain. I got an ekg and cbc blood test two days ago and it came out as fine but I ended up reading online that those tests won't tell the doctors about DVT because it needs specfic test. Now for the worst part I learned that DVT can give you pulmonary emoblism where it kills your lungs with a clot so now im even more scared! I have nobody to take me or willing to take me to a hospital to get checked out because I complain to much they say. Im like too nervous to sleep afraid I'll die in my sleep but I haven't injured my leg and I tend to get up and move around a ton. I'm 18 years old and a guy am I being over dramatic and will I be okay?
  • I'm scared to break up...

    So I have been with my boyfriend for over 2 and a half years... we both have been through tons together but over a year ago I made the decision that I didn't feel like I loved him anymore... he wasn't supportive of me when I had anorexia, I then was diagnosed with pre cervical cancer and still he wasn't supportive. It was all about weed. It's been way over a year and iv tried to ignore these signs. But is this what's causing my anxiety? The fact I'm pushing myself to be with someone who doesn't help me and has different interests to me etc. I'm scared of breaking up with him... I'm also scared of the after math or how he could react...
  • I'm stuck

    Lately I've been feeling stuck, like I'm not improving. I'm not getting worse either. But it seems like I've been doing better. But I'm not sure if it's because I am getting better and the working on myself is actually doing something. Or I'm only feeling like I'm doing better because the main trigger for my anxiety and depression is momentarily gone. I just don't know what to do. The working on myself is expressing my emotions and feelings more, and trying to reach out to my friends. I've been figuring out what Happens during an attack and what helps. I know myself pretty well in that area. But I want to be able to do more then just coping with it. I want it to get less. I only have no idea how
  • I've been having trouble breathing and my Dr says its anxiety. My breathing issue is that its hard to get a deep breath and it lasts all day. Is this normal? Will taking antianxiety medicine help?

  • Medicated at highest dosages, completed cbt, no trauma, but panic attacks suddenly came back after a year without a problem?

    Ive been on prozac, clonazepam, lamotrigine and hydroxyzine for a year for my panic disorder. Theyve been working wonderfully, anxiety has been under control. i got my panic disorder caught judt in time before it turned into full blown agoraphobia. But suddenly, my panic attacks have come back. I feel like i did before the medication. Nothing signifigant has changed in my life - i did get rejected by someone i liked (nothing traumatic), became vegetarian and i switched from smoking to vaping, those are the only things that have changed since ive been on medication. my psychiatrist is stumped. he suggested it may be due to an underlying medical reason. does anyone have an idea of whats wrong with me? 22 female, not in school, and im quitting my part time job because of the panic attacks. i also have GAD and OCD that gets worse when my panic/anxiety gets up. i most definitely have agoraphobic tendencies but i can still function outside my home. also depression but i havent showed symptoms in years.
  • Ringing of the ears

    So for the past day or so iv had a quiet but annoying ringing in my ear. Im only 19 and i started worrying whether it was tinnitus... is it just my anxiety making an appearance?
  • Why do I cry?

    I am not shore what is going on with me. My energy is low, I cry for no reason. Mood is changing like a traffic light. My sister tells me that I have depression and anxiety. I do not have some special problem, could this be some phase or she is right?
