    I just came in from the hospital about 2 hours ago. I took an edible im pretty sure and went to another universe thats what started my anxiety attack back in february but then I smoked a dab. I haven't been to work in 2 days because I'm afraid its going to end up with me having a bad anxiety attack because Im at work again. They gave me clonazepam at the hospital.

    Does anyone recommend any prescription?

    Clonazepam is Generic Klonopin and according to my Doctor provides about 6 hours of relief from those moments of high anxiety.
    He also says it is not a long term solution and is addictive.
    You need to speak to your doctor about starting you on one of the many anti-depressants/anti-anxiety meds that are on the market such as Lexapro, Celexa, Zoloft, etc.
    These drugs all work in a similar fashion however different people respond differently so it may be trial and error on which one will work for you, again, speak to your doctor.

    I was on 40 mg's of Citalopram (Generic Celaxa) for 10 years and it started losing its effectiveness and I am now on 150 mg's of Zoloft which works GREAT for me.

    You may also want to consider counseling.

    Good Luck and I hope your anxiety subsides at least to a point that you can function.

    My fellow researchers at Penn State University have created a free app called Mood Triggers that helps people identify things that can trigger their worry, panic, anxious feelings, or depressed moods.



    *

    Features of Mood Triggers:



    Mood Triggers can help you keep a diary of:
    1. Your anxiety and depression in your daily life


    2. Health behaviors including your heart rate, number of steps, and sleep duration (all collected by the app)



    *

    Mood Triggers can also figure out why you are anxious or depressed based on data in your daily life. Mood Triggers will use your own data and run statistical analyses on them to tell you what's associated with your anxiety and depression.



    *

    I believe this could be useful for you. It's extremely private and you can work through it at your own pace without the judgment of others. I hope this helps.

    We are going into the season that makes me worse. I want more out of life so it is hard to manage.

    I was on medication but it made me feel weird so now I use Mantra Magnets. They're earrings you clip on that vibrate as a neuro therapy tool and reset your amygdala. I love them! They really help.
