      @Journie Thank you. I mostly mean relying on medication rather than other coping methods for anxiety and such. My biggest issue is I get the worst anxiety when I try to drive so I still don’t have my license at nearly 35 years old.

      First Zoloft, then Lexapro. Both worked until they didn't. Now on Effexor. I've had to increase the dose every 2-3 years though.

      I take Latuda and Prozac. Still in the trial and adjustment stages for correct dosage. Not working well at the present time.

      I take klonapin and a beta blocker metoprolol in addition to Zoloft and Wellbutrin.

      Really none except Klonopin as needed. It works well for me.

      I was on Zoloft for a few months but the side effects became a little unbearable. My dr had me do a genetic test and switch to Effexor. It’s working much better and my head feels clearer. They also have me doing a supplement for folic acid to help it be more effective since I tested low on that. Definitely recommend the genetic test because it showed the medications I’ve had bad side effects before marked as ones to avoid plus others they were going to put me on and the one I’m on I’ve had very little issue side effect wise as they predicted.

      I take buspar 3 times a day and celexa once a day. I still don't feel like that's enough but I've been going through some stressful stuff.

      Zoloft, it helped immensely

      I’m on 5mg of buspirone three times a day and I keep telling them it isn’t working for me, but I also don’t want to be too reliant on it, you know?

        @LadyTavali it was not effective for my daughter either.

        @LadyTavali I'm a nationally certified pharmacy technician. Having this occupation for many years has taught me a lot about the medicines I dispense. While I know and understand your concern about dependency, I can whole heatedly assure you that Buspar is not addictive. I hope this little tied bit of information, will help put your mind at ease a little.❤❤😘

      Cymbalta here. Had to increase the dosage in 2020 after my dad passed away. Almost needed to have it increased more 6 months later after my bff/sister unexpectedly passed away.
