  • Anxiety and Lexapro

    Can Lexapro be taken for anxiety? I used to take it for less than a year. My phsychiatrist prescribed it to me for anxiety. It caused me to become angrier and basically I got set off really easy. I can't find this out anywhere.

    Possible needle phobia ?

    I am a male 25 years. My problem is, for any shots that are given in arm I feel like I am about to faint and feel light headed. Same feel if blood is taken as well. However, if the shot is given in hip or bottom area, I feel perfectly normal and comfortable. I recently read a post about needle phobia. Is this something I should worry about long term ?

    Question about suppliment

    I have been reading a great deal about suppliments and mental health. I, personally, take Fish, Flax, and Borage once/day. Concentration, depression, and sequencing seem to be issues for me (and my adult daughter). Recently, I've read about the potential benefits of 5-HTP. My concern is this: Some suppliments encourage the reduction of cancers, while others seem to "fan the flames" of certain cancers and encourage their growth. I do not have cancer, but I have had siblings and a parent....

    We've been here before. Kinda...

    My life has been a nightmare since I came into this world it seems. I've (more than) struggled with my mental and emotional well being since I was 7. It started off as the (too often) misdiagnosed ADHD. Depression was later on added on to what seems now to be a never ending list of diagnosis'. From there Bipolar 2 was added. And then Anxiety Disorder, which was specified as PTSD at a later date. Lastly, Borderline Personality Disorder was put at the bottom to end the list. The number hospitalizations....

    What is wrong with me

    For a few years now I have dealt with depression and anxiety. I started Lexapro and I felt almost completely better until it stopped working at around 6 months in. I have added new antidepressants to my regimen and i don’t feel depressed, I feel functional however I am still incredibly apathetic, stressed, and just feel meaningless. I think I still have depression but not as debilitating as before. I feel like my quality of life is really being affected by this though and I don’t know why I feel....

    How can I get an emergency 1 time benzo refill- please help!

    So I take three klonopin a day for ptsd, bipolar, and a severe anxiety disorder. Recently I discovered I was pregnant but decided not to carry through with the pregnancy because my bf left when he found out. I was experiencing pregnancy symptoms, even after the procedure, such as nausea, which caused me to throw up some of my medication after taking it- and then I had to take another dose to make up for what I threw up, causing me to run out of my medication early. I am not completely out but I do....
