    I have a terrible anxiety disorder and noone seems to be able to help.  Please help me, or at least point me in the right direction.


    Thank You,

    A G.P. will be able to prescribe this for you if you can convince him how much you need it.  You may want to try/see a shrink...................

    A regular family doctor should be able to prescribe it for you. 

    domenique I tried that, he wanted to put me on something i've been on before and doesn't work: busporine or something like that. I get such bad panic attacks that I can't even leave the house, this is terrible.

    Colleen Then try a different doctor. A doctor should listen to you.

    start with your family doctor . He or she can either start you on anti-anxiety pills,or point you to a good psychiatrist; or he'll send you to a Dr. that has a lot of experience with adjusting medication for anxiety and depression . Some states and some insurance companies won't let your familiy Dr. give you those drugs, except to get you stared on them. From there, you have to go to a psychiatrist to get them. Unfortuntately, many people don't have health insurance and can't afford the pills.There are inexpensive self- help groups you can go to . And some group therapy sessions aren't too expensive. I wish you the best, and I"ve been thru it since I was in the 8th grade.

    doolittle Great advice!!

    Try and not resort to xanax (too adictive)you can beat anxiety/panic attacks with simple breathing techniques.

    Nene43 I disagree w/pythonlover. I have in the past taken Kloanipin from a neurologist and later from a psychiatrist. I now take Ativan (lorazepam) from a psychatrist. Panic attacks/severe anxiety attacks are horrible. I believe you CANNOT beat them with breathing exercises. See if your family Dr. will refer you to either a neurologist or psychatrist. My prayers go out to you. Best wishes.

    pythonlover I have beat my panic attacks/anxiety dissorder,i have done a 12 week self help program.The breathing technique certainly reduces the symptons when you are in a full blown panic attack.

    It depends on how often and how bad your panic attacks are.Ask your regular dr. fist and go from there.Thats what i did i was refered to a great specialist.

    Anxiety is painful but a valium can make it all go away.


    Go to the mental health clinic. But a private shrink for you would be best bet.


    Don't self medicate you'll make it worse.
