The only vitamin i've been taking is a daily multivitamin mostly because i havent had the extra money to pick up any other supplements. Would you mind telling me what a good brain vitamin and supplement regimen would be?
Since i was hit on march 2nd of this year, i have had a pretty constant flow of anxiety. A lot of the time im able to distract myself and not think about it much, but eventually im right back into that circle of bad thoughts. Ativan did help with that a little aswell as helping me sleep, but it doesnt seem like its helping much with the rapid thoughts.
I havent had an anxiety attack since i've been taking ativan, its basically just keeping it at bay although the anxiety is still there weather i take it or not.
The only thing my doctor suggested was Buspar, which i will not take because of the research i have done on it. The possibility of permanent side effects really scares me, so i wont be taking that. He has mentioned things like Lexapro and Paxil, but after my experience with Citalopram its making it really hard to want to get back on an anti depressant.

What are your anxiety triggers? Have you been able to do anything to avoid or reduce your exposure to these triggers?
Has your doctor suggested trying propanolol ? It is much easier on the brain.
