The best person to talk to you re: meds is your doctor. Also talk to a counsellor about what's causing your anxiety etc., I was prescribed Cipralex. I also have a very mild sedative for really bad times.
I have just been prescribed anti-depressants due to anxiety disorder and will be testing them out for a couple of weeks.
Hubby and I emigrated to Canada from the UK 3.5yrs ago and due to having to deal with a lot of doo doo, my nerves have been well and truly jangled. My weight has dropped and I have a high stress job. The doctor told me to eat more - first time I have ever heard that one.
Am doing a half marathon next weekend and then start training for a full marathon a couple of weeks after.
