What do you mention to a doctor to get benzos, beta blockers, or even therapist recommendation? by Eugene Worthingford - Mon, 20 Mar 2017 20:04:58 EST ID:cPzvstN8 No.134493 Ignore Report Quick Reply

And how do you even make the appointment? I can't even say hello to someone without going into a panic anymore. Maybe it's part of working in solitude for the past year, or not having alcohol as a crutch anymore, perhaps even a series of severe panic attacks breaking me down.

I'm thinking of getting drunk, having dab and walking to the walk in and see where it goes from there. But even then I don't know.

Fuckk. I can't even have sex anymore. I'm pretty fucking broken.

Lol like that guy who had a panic attack because his computer started acting up and had to drown it with pills

Don't turn to drugs man. Take yourself out of your comfort zone and face the music. Exposure therapy. Hike your skirt up and just stick it through. Don't go back to your crutches. You'll come out a better and stronger person.

I just got back from my psychiatrist and I told her that I need to take oxazepam every evening because I start to feel this muscle tension and general feeling of shittiness.

I told her that I wanted to get off that shit, she told me that I just needed to take higher dosage of effexor(that shit that turns you into low libido and takes the way your ability to even have feels, so you're kinda in this unnatural mental space of not reacting and becoming apathetic) .

But the reason why I don't want to up my SSRI dose is because I know what I'm having isn't related to anxiety, it's more a direct linkage to my benzo usage.

She was shilling upping my SSRI dose so hard and passive aggresivly when all I wanted to do was to get out of this cycle of benzo dependency and the fact that I over exercise because I'm so afraid of becoming out of shape again. I don't even take a brake from working out for weeks.

Now I've taken 30 mg oxies and 14 mg lunastia and I finally feel like I can relax.

I really don't see how taking more SSRI should help anxiety when genuinely depended on benzos and over work my body.

Yeaaaaah that'd be me.... lol

Without Klonopin I'm a mess of constant panic attacks and PTSD flashbacks. It's funny cuz I have absolutely no social anxiety and am the extroverted life of the party among my friends.... but even a blue screen of death or an unexpected knock at the door can cause me to break down into tears.

FML.

>hey i have severe anxiety issues
>"lol dont use anti anxiety drugs for that"

like, that's their intended use when prescribed as such, that's the fuckin IDEA and esp with how there are different ones for different uses, the way sense influences phenomenology and anxiety-as-sensed, anxiety-as-being is complicated and benzos can help. "Just GET OUT THERE!" is fucking difficult if you feel like you can't even make it to a therapist appointment.

like seriously, the idea of a benzo is often to remedy symptoms in order to allow one to work on habits, to allow you to deal with the symptoms and use the two in tandem to reach other therapeutic ends.

Like seriously, people dealt with their anxiety problems head on before benzos were even invented. OP is freaking out because he's lived a work life with no social contact.

He's not some broken being. This is clearly a case of stepping outside your comfort zone and dealing with it. This isn't severe anxiety case.

It's the same shit with kids who raised themselves in front of a computer and not stepping out into the world to experience life outside their internet bubble

Leave her practice. It's an SNRI not SSRI and it could be causing some of the problems. Ditch the bitch.

Well I mean it goes deeper than what I've stated. Getting into confrontations, compulsions to stab random people, driving like I'm in an F1 or some shit, remotely pitting people against eachother, living on edge to the point I'm willing to fuck other peoples lives over, messing peoples shit up, I can crash a bike at 30mph and not give a fuck but if I have to talk to people in any form I'll go into full panic mode, or fight mode.

I took SSRIs 8-14. Fucked my brain up good. Don't do it.

That's a shame, and fucked up that they'd prescribe them to an 8 year old. There's no real solid evidence for using them in teenagers, let alone children. That said they did kind of help me as an adult. I can see how you would want nothing to do with them though

...Clearly. I wish I was gifted enough to psychoanalyze and pass judgement on someone's entire life based on a single forum post. What you say is true for a lot of people but you're assuming a lot.

Could be OCD (it can manifest as resistable compulsions or obsessive thoughts about harming people, or many other things, a personality disorder or any of a hundred other things.
Just saying what you've said here (and in the OP) to a doctor/shrink isn't the worst starting place. You can always get a second opinion if you don't get along with the doctor or therapist. I found it took quite a while and several different doctors/shrinks/psychologists to find ones who I could relate to.

Speak with a health care professional and explain to them how your anxiety has negatively impacted your quality of life and ability to function.

If it is a crisis go to emerge, otherwise go to your family doctor or reach out through public services.

Just be aware not every situation requires medication and often can be dealt with through therapy or a combination of both.

Best of luck and stay safe. You may wish to reevaulate your usage of other drugs and alcohol as well.

some people dealt with them...and some didn't and were reclusive their whole goddamn lives. or hey, drank, like OP mentioned!! like if they're fucking able to use benzos to ease themselves into a life that they enjoy more then why the fuck not take them as a component in therapy?

anyway whatever lmao

This. Of course, popping loads of caffeine from any source before the consult also works wonders. I have super high BP/heartrate and such for my age so of course it didn't take much in the way of caffeine to seal the deal.


Normally doctors only care about the "fun" stuff which is all arbitrary and retarded anyway so if you're seeking heart pills even though it is more dangerous they're way easier to get and you won't be classed as a seeker even if you really do have use for benzos and they're safer.

Sadly the way the stupid drug laws are set up any encounter with law, medicine, and/or psychiatry should always be taken as a game of lies and manipulation and don't leave a trace of it on your record if at all possible. If you do, move states/countries and never sign off on any disclosure forms.
