I have not been diagnosed by a mental health professional but feel I have anxiety disorder. I have been on meds - Paroxatine currently and have been for 9 years now. My daughter-in-law recently received her masters in social work and has told me that I should not be on them. I have a couple of questions. Is there a limit to the time you can be on them? Do they cause sweating?
I know how you feel. I have had the same issues for the past 9 years. I have been on all the meds and they do work. But I am now trying to figure out a way to deal with the anxiety and off the meds. You took step one, right here. Saying it all out loud, to people who actually know how it feels and don't think you are "crazy". Main thing to remember is you will not die, breath, breath and breath. Stay strong. Seek out a professional to talk to, that is my next step as well, (also kinda scary).View Thread
