Hi J!

It sounds like your doctors were not very knowledgeable about side effects. IMO, many pdocs do not know much about the side effects of drugs- as a result they are often very casual about prescribing them. Remember, your pdoc was only trying to help you feel better, try not to be angry. It is never possible to predict for certain how a person will respond to a drug. If your pdoc had known how badly you would suffer s/he would not have prescribed the medication.

>I have found nothing that really helps and that is why I feel so lost.

Herbs and even vitamins can sometimes cause side effects though- so take care, I'm sure you will. You should post on the 'alternative' page and ask Larry for suggestions...

There are several supplements/vitamins/herbs that you could try for your anxiety, here is a list of some examples:

1. Niacinamide (a form of vitamin B3)

2. A vitamin B complex

3. Taurine (an amino acid)

4. L-Theanine (an amino acid)

5. St John's Wort (a herb)

6. Valerian (a herb, not in any way related to Valium- a benzo)

7. Folic acid (a vitamin)

7. Passionflower (a herb)

8. Picamilon (vitamin B3 bound to GABA)

9. Melissa (a herb)

Other things you could try...

1. Get the advice of a nutritionist

2. Go to see a psychologist (eg. for CBT)
