Anyone know of any? I was perscribed effexor xr, but I would really like to try something natural first.
i just replied to your other thread. i have used both homeopathics and herbs as well as flower essences in trying to deal with anxiety and depression. currently i am on zoloft and a mood stablizer zyprexa. i still get alot of anxiety, but am told zoloft is supposed to be good for GAD.
for anxiety i used "arsenicum alb. 30C" - a homeopathic. for depression "ignata imara 30C" worked very well.
homeopathics can work very very well, but are quite specific to sypmtoms. i would look at a homeopathic guide (book or online) for finding the right one for you. homeopathics are extrmely safe. there are no side effects and if you take the 'wrong' one nothing happens. they come in tubes which you twist to dispense into the lid. do not touch them with your hands, put directly into your mouth. do not eat or drink for 15 mins prior or after, tastes can affect how they will work. you can buy them at health food stores. they are little pellets that taste like sugar. check them out!
flower essences also have worked well for me.
