Anxiety from hormone and stim use
I've been having some anxiety lately. It's been amplified when on hormones and obviously stims -anyone else have this problem? It's to the point where I can't use stims at all anymore. I was told by my doctor that my exertion based migranes are caused by anxiety so I was prescribed xanax and paxil. I really don't have any other stress in my life right now. So maybe it's been caused by my hormonal imbalance. I've discontinued use of everything. Anyone have any thoughts on this? I don't want to have to take any prescription drugs long term. Thanks

Yep, a lot of people suffer this from the above use. You probably won't have to stay on it long if it was induced by your use of stims etc.

Sorry to hear that man. I know how debilitating a migraine can be. I hope your tests come back negative and you find a solution soon.

sounds like it could be blood pressure related. try to find out your blood pressure if possible. if its high, take the required supps to help it. in addition, clen is known to cause anxiety and leave many people that use it to feel like garbage. you did the right thing by stopping your cycle and stims. i know very well how hard it is to do that.

Take care of yourself. Things will get better.

I honestly think these sides get better every time and a good portion of it, in most cases, is mental.
First time i ran something I could swear i felt it running through my body and doing all kind sof crazy stuff....now, nothing. i don't even feel the "pounding" in my head i used to.

Nope not BP-I checked that daily at home with my own steth and cuff. I have 3 hormone cycles under my belt.....never had the anxiety issue. As far as the anxiety being mental....That thought has crossed my mind-my neurologist doesn't think it is. Whatever.
As far as the test results for my noggin- they came back negative for a cerebral aneurysm/vascular problem. That's why he THINKS it's a migrane brought on by exertion. Thanks

Anxiety is a really common problem i'm on Paxil as well and it's stopped my depression and anxiety. I was on lerazapam for a while, i'd just pop one when i was having an anxiety attack and it'd mellow me out.

Did you have that problem before cycles and stims?? Any problem in the libido department. I was told that that was one of the common sides. Thanks for the replies- more are always welcome.Originally Posted by CHAPS

Before cycles or stims yes i had the problems, and i do find that i have a lowered desire to have sex, so a lower sexual drive in general, but on the plus side it really seems to extend the time till orgasm so that's cool, lol.

I agree that some cycles can cause anxiety after cycle. In the past I had major panic/anxiety issues after SD. I experienced Migraines, tingling extremities, thoughts of dying, dizziness, SOB, rapid heart and many other common anxiety symptoms. It took a few times to the ER to narrow it down. It got to the point that I could think of the wrong thing and I would have an anxiety attack.
Benzos and certain supps will definately help the anxiety but from experience taking longer breaks between cycles seem to do me good. Imbalanced hormones can definately leave you in a weak mental state. If your under alot of stress don't begin a cycle because it seems that it amplifies stress when coming off. Make sure you are mentally prepared.
If all else fails just tell yourself "I'll be OK" and you usually will. This is just one of the sides of toying with your hormone levels. Staying in a positive mindset will pull you through!!
