    I'm sure some of you with anxiety know what I'm talking about. It's pretty stupid, but it ****s me up.

    I've seen a lot of bros recommend different things for anxiety. So those of you who've tried what do you recommend?

    Note: I have not tried taking anything at this point to try to combat my anxiety. I do not wish to go on any prescription drugs either. But I've seen people say about pregnolone, kratom, dopamine, etc
    How long have you had this? I don't know if 'Anxiety' is the same as 'Panic Attacks', but believe it or not, extreme training, combined with poor breathing while sleeping (through the mouth) - can introduce Hypocapnia - reduced CO2, and cause panic. I gave this to myself when I was 290lbs and decided to get in shape with Intense Cardio combined with German Volume Training from Day 1 - yes I was very stupid once. I cured it by calming the F down, using a Breathe Right strip every night, and actually taping my mouth shut during sleep. I also read up on some Buteyko stuff. Just an FYI.


  2. I can tell you that using a breathe right and taping your mouth shut isn't going to help anyone other than maybe you. LOL

    I love weed but recommending it for anxiety is bad advice imo. It can seriously increase anxiety and paranoia dependy on the individual.

    Which is why I suggested knowing which strain, and starting slow. Medicinal versus buying something random.

    Dont rely on drugs to get though this. rely on willpower. I started a new job and went though some, ulcers, stressed, I went though it though and better for it now.

    do you take stimulates? is that the cause of rapid heart beat?

    I'm glad willpower worked for you. Congrats, you don't have an anxiety disorder. Drugs should only be attempted after non-pharmaceutical options have been tried, but to tell somebody that you don't know and don't know the full extent of what they're dealing to not consider a pharmaceutical option because you didn't need one is complete bull****!

    I didnt say I dont know. I said go though the difficult times , it'll only make you better. Fall down, get back up. Stop being a wimp and staying down when you fall down. Its okay to cry, its okay to scream, its okay to express your emotions. Get back up

    Are you on long term prescription drugs like ssri's, ssni's to boost happy chemicals?

    going low is part of the process, thats when the weak crumble. I know its cliche, when you least expect it, when things are at their lowest, things get better.

    You didn't know that willpower can fix a chemical imbalance or genetic predisposition? Come on man.

    If I cringe any harder I fear I may cramp up really bad.

    I know right? I'm also working with some lung cancer patients. I think I should take his advice and tell them to stop crying and get back up.

    In all seriously, many people wimp out and rely on long term prescription meds to take care of their problems bc they dont have the mental toughness, responsibility or fortitude to go though with what it takes. Thank God I do

    You're a c*nt and a seriously horrible person. Again, you didn't have an anxiety disorder, so congratulations. Some people are going to have their lives literally saved by good counseling and medication. And I will never stop calling out fraud mother****ers like you who think they're an authority because they make youtube videos. So go play in traffic while the adults continue speaking.

  16. Sounds like you might have GAD. Get a script for lexapro and you will start feeling much better. And anyone that says Rx is bad and supplements are good is living an overly simplistic life where everything fits neatly into one box or the other.

    This post seems out of character for you. Just because you donít understand the biochemical aspect of psychiatric conditions doesnít mean they donít exist and that others donít experience them. If you were to take an Rx antidepressant you wouldnít ďmagicallyĒ be happy. It likely would do absolutely nothing because you didnít have any clinical issues, just normal day to day mild ones. Calling someone mentally weak for being depressed or having anxiety is low and I would think youíd have an open mind more than others on here.

    This might be the funniest post I have ever read.

    I thought busporine was more effective with GAD?? Plus you won't get most of the side effects that come with ssris

    Ssris are first line. Buspirone takes a very long time to work and even then itís not as effective. I rarely see that used anymore to be honest.

    Buspirone might help when added on to something else, but I haven't seen it used effectively by itself. Patients vary though.

    okie Dokie . Think im in authority ? what? I dont think im better than anyone , we are all gods Children. Now I am better at classic physique competing than you . I know quite a lot about mental discilpine than you, and do certain anxiety disorders exists, I dont know, Ive had anxiety disorder before Thank God. for the people that have them like yourself I know God can bless you and get you better. My point is many people rely on drugs that dont need them because theyre mentally weak and want to rely on drugs and have people feel sorry for them. I love you like God loves all his children. =-) I hope your nasty attitude wishing people to die doesn't cause you a mental disorder or cancer =-) bc holding onto hate, fear, etc sure can cause illness in the body, along in the face , looking uglier. God bless you Child

    See my above post. As far as antidepressants, I was put on them at fourteen years old. My parents put me on them bc I listened to rock and roll, and questioned their beliefs. They believed a tv was wrong, they believed wearing shorts was wrong, they believed women have to wear dresses and keep their hair uncut. Well the antidepressants made me worse, more depressed and out of wack. Thankfully, after three months I was taken off them, I don't even know half the medicines they gave me, wellbutrin, klonopin, some other bull****. Thankfully my parents changed their beliefs some. Im so against over prescribed drugs bc so many kids , like myself , were and are given them as experiments.

    For people that are sociopaths, schizo and see things, yes they need help.

    Iím sorry that your parents put you through all that. As a child you obviously had no choice essentially and I can understand your current aversion towards those medications. You likely didnít need them then as you donít need them now. But for those that do have clinic illnesses, depression and anxiety disorders being among them, though perhaps not as life altering and physically obvious as schizophrenia, are still very real. The goal for anyone should be to become stable off medications, supplements and prescriptions alike. But some people have genetic differences or environmental circumstances that lead to chemical changes and morphological changes in the brain. Itís not just chemicals being out of whack. Various depressive and anxiety disorders have been shown via various imaging techniques to be actually physical changes in the human brain, with decreased hippocampal size being just one found in depressive disorders, and decreased amygdala size in anxiety disorders.

    Just to be clear I assume everyone on this forum is an adult, and can make their own decisions with their own bodies. As a child with parents pushing medications on you that robbed you of your choice. But for those that choose to take these medications because of real clinical problems, not just daily fluctuation in stress and circumstances, they can be life altering for the better.
