  • I take lorazpam for panic attacks. Its not addictive and and it doesn't make me sleepy. I only take it if I need it.
    I've taken many many many differant ssri's and they all make me feel weird. I gave up on them and found more natural ways to deal with my ongoing anxiety. The Lorazpam is only for attacks.

  • I take Lexapro and Wellbutrin combined for anxiety and depression and I have not had any anxiety issues since it started to kick in. There were things I was terrifed to do because my anxiety was so bad. Now I feel like I have crossed some bridge in life. Therapy also has helped.

  • I used to take Zoloft when I was depressed during a really low point in my marriage. It worked well for me and I didn't experience any sie effects.
