Anxious

Best meds for anxiety besides benzodiazepines ? I’ve tried Zoloft , Lexapro , buspar , trazidone. Ativan helps but I can’t take that long term so any advice ? What was your experience ?

      Hi! I take Zoloft and Klonopin when I feel very anxious.. it also helps me fall asleep in bad times. I assume everyone has to find the best drug or combination and it can take some time

      Adaptogens! CBD! Normalizing the adrenals with a GOOD adrenal supplement, which will be comprised of adaptogens.

      I’m 50 years young and have dealt with anxiety since age 15. Paxil and Trazodone in the evening along with Tegretol help tremendously. I am also taking a benzodiazepine called clonozapam on an as needed basis.
