      Hydroxazine. I think it’s a mild one, but it isn’t habit forming.

    • VenusDeMilo

      Gabapentin 3 times a day.

    • E_belli

      I'm on Prozac & Hydroxyzine everyday & in mad panic attacks I take Klonopin.

        @KratomEater hydroxazine is also used as an allergy medication. I tried it for anxiety but it didn’t help

          @Angeliquet07734 yeah m, that is true as well. It helps me a Little, but I can see how it wouldn’t help some people

      Unfortunately my psychiatrist wont treat my anxiety because she treats everyone like a junkie and I can’t take SSRI’s because I have too many side effects. So I’m on depakote and aripiprazole for my bipolar disorder and that’s it.

        @Angeliquet07734 my son is taking depakote. I think it's helping.

      I'm on effexor for both my anxiety and my depression.

    • ItsJustMe

      389d

      Alprazolam... I take it in on as needed basis ... Sometimes everyday sometimes every third or fourth day.. it just calms me down and makes me feel regular.

    • SpookyKitten

      389d

      I take Xanex 0.5mg 3 times a day prn (as needed) or take half of a medical marijuana edible

      GABApenten calmed my anxiety. I was so stressed before I took the medication that my hair was falling out, but the gaba fixed it. It has little to no side effects, is non addictive and you can’t overdose on it. I’m on 600ml 3x a day. It didn’t completely get rid of my anxiety, but I found that the caffeine in green tea calms me down quite a bit when taken with gaba.

      I've been through a lot of medications - propanalol, sertraline, ecitalipram, venlafaxine, I am currently taking duloxetine. My body hasn't been reacting well to any of the medications so far, and duloxetine actually has the reverse effect and gives me panic attacks and anxiety when I take it, and I'm also getting a lot more indigestion since taking it. I'm working through to find what's right for me but damn it's been a long journey

    • lilcrustymusty

      I don’t take any medication for them I was diagnosed young but whenever I’ve asked they just give antidepressants which can’t help me

      • pandasss

        389d

    • aroura1

      400d

      I take fluoxitine for anxiety, but it does not help my panic attack

    • Gingeralamode

      401d

      Hydroxyzine for PRN. It's a really common one

    • Keisha

      • Keisha

        401d

    • PrincessCheese

      401d

      Fluoxetine since I was 7 (before it was licensed to kids) and propanalol since 2022

    • robin2

      401d

      both no addictive. However elexceptipram can be hard to titrate of off. It can be done tho. I've come off both that and venflaxine recently.

    • robin2

      401d

      Pregabalin. Works a treat. Very addictive tho so beware.

    • callyann

      401d

      Propranolol worked for me really well but the left me on it for ten years which severely effected my breathing...I struggle now with my chest constantly...just worth asking about x

    • Squire

      401d

      Fluoxetine

    • Picklelover21

      401d

      Lexapro and it doesn’t work. For more severe times hydroxyzine which puts me to sleep. Which is bad because a lot of times I’m at work.

      • pandasss

        401d

        @Picklelover21 How severe does it need to be to take it? I have frequent flashbacks which turn into panic attacks, would that be ok or does it need to be worse?

    • Cara55

      401d

      Nothing cuz no one will give me anything for it

    • cabezacansada

      401d

      I have had severe anxiety since I was a little girl. No doctor had ever prescribed me anything for it until just this last year. Buspirone. I take 15mg 3x's a day. For the first time ever I know what it feels like to not live in constant anxiety!

    • Prinny

      401d

      Lexapro

    • KratomEater

      402d

      Hydroxazine. It’s not habit forming and helps take off the edge.

    • Dionysus429

      402d

      I take elexceptipram! It's longterm as well as a depression med

    • fxrest.faxrie

      402d

      propranolol and escitalopram!!!

      • pandasss

        402d

        @fxrest.faxrie Are either of those addictive?

    • willownyx

      402d

      propranolol! especially helps with physical symptoms of panic attacks for me :)

    • puffypillar

      402d

      I've tried meds, they don't work for me so I've been using CBD. I'm not saying to ditch everything and only use it but I have noticed it help alot. I usually smoke it, but tincture works rly well too

    • Lonelyturtle

      403d

      Zoloft

      • Krystal

        402d

        @Lonelyturtle I just got prescribed Zoloft to treat my mild depression and anxiety. I am very nervous to start it. How has your experience been with it?

        • Lonelyturtle

          401d

          @Krystal i have been on it a week and so far so good. I was suffering from really bad anxiety so my doctor thought I would benefit from it. I Can relate to you where I was really nervous to try it since I’ve never been on antidepressants before. The first day I had really bad nausea but I was fine after that. I also had really bad anxiety the first day but I think it’s because I had preworkout. I have stopped drinking caffeine besides matcha and I’ve had no issues besides that first day. My anxiety is pretty much gone. I don’t feel like I’m constantly in a state of flight or fight. I also got my appetite back. I was underweight and I’ve gained like 4 pounds. I’m happy with it so far.

          @Krystal have you been on anything before? Have you started it yet

    • RandiJean

      403d

      I take propranolol during my panic attacks or right before. My BP will run high all day if I don't.

    • Darby33

      403d

      I take propranolol

    • Jadiemay

      403d

      Propranolol. It’s the fast acting kind. Meaning I take it as I need it. Some days I take none, some days I take 1, 2 or 3 doses just depends on the severity of my anxiety that day. I’ve tried many for anxiety and depression but this has been the best thing for me personally and would recommend it to someone who maybe doesn’t want something long term or is bad at remembering to take their tablets everyday. It’s also the only one tablet I’ve taken that’s not given me any side effects.

    • _kindly.ci_

      404d

      i took fluoxetine, witch didn’t work for me but lots of people do like it. i’m now on Citalopram 20mg and i love it it has helped a lot.

    • kay3

      404d

      Would you all say the meds help? Did you all get any side effects?

    • Motley

      404d

      Clonazepam for panic attacks, only med that's ever made me feel like a real human being tbh. Only downside is I can't take it as much as I want to.

    • Haleyc210

      405d

      Clonazepam but it can make You drowsy

    • carter._.16

      405d

      I take Prozac and Hydroxozine. I take them both for long term anxiety , but Hydroxozine is used for both long and short term anxiety. I used to take it for panic attacks, but now take it daily at a lower dose. I've found that they're both helpful and that I can manage my anxiety better with them

      • Yuka

        404d

        @carter._.16 how long have you been on hydroxyzine?

        • carter._.16

          399d

          @Yuka I've been on Hydroxozine for about 2 years. At first I took it just for panic attacks, but now I take it twice a day!

    • Memo
