I do. It's hard to live with but I find meds just make it harder so I just use grounding exercises and hope for the best - Tbh I think meds should only be used when you're dealing with serious (not that anxiety isn't serious) mental issues (ie that directly put you or others in danger) the way meds alter your mind can be irreversible and it really can make you feel worse than you were before. Think it through!

I've been diagnosed with it, but I don't use medication for it because of medical issues. My psychiatrist is too apprehensive about prescribing me pretty much anything because of previous issues and current concerns.

Co-codamol isn't used for anxiety though?

:yep: changed my life. but it only helps with physical symptoms, like racing-heart, light-headedness, sweating.; it doesn't 'cure' the anxiety or makes you feel better in that aspect. i'm personally reluctant to try anti-depressants because i don't believe in their success, but the propranolol you will see immediate results in your physical symptoms.

all that said, i have friends who've said anit-depressants worked for them, so it's worth trying stuff out. have you spoken to your GP?

Ngl that seems pretty careless of that doctor. I hope you don't take it regularly.

It won't work because it's inappropriate. I'm really very surprised you got prescribed that. I've never heard of anyone being prescribed Cocodamol because of anxiety related chest pain. Anyway, it's addictive. Don't abuse it. It's a pain killer. If you're having trouble with sleep, speak to your GP and get something that is meant to be used to treat insomnia.

People have said that I shake my legs and am all jittery when I am in front of people. I don’t really notice this. When I’m in front of people everything just becomes ‘one’ and I become de sensitised yo my environment. Has anyone got any similar experiences.

i don't have that disorder but i have a lot of ptsd-related anxiety . and yeah i do take meds for it. normally, benzos for any anxiety/sleep issues. sometimes also hypnotics to help me sleep (generally, anxiety fuels insomnia, too). sometimes doctors will prescribe you antidepressants for general anxiety. or even betablockers. are you considering going on meds then?
