my Anxiety. I tried for CBD
But I still felt overstimulated all the time. Try This Guided Meditation for Anxiety. I went to the doctor, and they were quick to suggest a remedy: I opted in and noticed the effects almost immediately.
Literally, 15 to 20 minutes later. The feeling of being overwhelmed and uncomfortable went away. I felt a little bit tired too which I didn't love , but I liked the results otherwise and it seemed worth it. With this anxiety medication, you take it as needed. But I found that the more I took, the more I needed it.
I found myself burning through a day supply pretty quickly and having to call my doctor to get my prescription upped. I was very aware that I wanted and needed more to feel comfortable. I never had issues sleeping before. But soon, I found that if I didn't pop a pill before bed, I wouldn't be able to sleep. At that point, I realized I was becoming very dependent on it. After two years, I talked to my doctor and decided to come off of the prescription meds. As I did, I found that my anxiety was worse than before.
The doctors suggested things like meditation and taking a bath—nothing particularly helpful. All my symptoms were back, and I was willing to try anything. I hadn't eaten much processed or added sugar in about 10 years, but I decided to cut it out completely, in case it was the cause of my chronic headaches.
I even stopped caffeine. I would peruse the wellness department at the natural food stores and I tried everything—melatonin, valerian root, kava —to no avail.
I kept hearing about all the benefits of CBD including for anxiety , but I dismissed it for a while. It sounded questionable, expensive, and too good to be true, like modern-day snake oil. I was reluctant because I had also tried all the other holistic remedies I'd heard of, and it all seemed fruitless.
I was feeling more overwhelmed than ever and had no leads on a fix. This was my rock bottom. So I decided to try CBD for my anxiety. After all, what did I have to lose? I started taking a tincture every day, without expecting any results.
At about the seven- to day mark, I realized that it was helping. It wasn't a huge aha moment, because I was used to prescription drugs that hit me instantly with a really harsh effect. This was more subtle: All the tension that I'd had in my neck and shoulders felt like it had melted away. Liked by fraidknots , Chris Trout , becsbuddy , lioness Welcome to Mayo Connect.

I haven't used it for depression as I already take an antidepressant. It doesn't seem to interfere with my Citalopram. I decided to try CBD when I was withdrawing from Tramadol, a synthetic opiate I had been taking for pain with 2 other medications for over a year. As I began slowly reducing my use, I experienced a lot of anxiety and muscle tremors in my legs especially.
I know that using a marijuana medication meant that my pain doctor would not prescribe for me again, but I was getting off the pain medications one by one anyway, so I don't care.
The CBD Living Water was my favorite as it just was like drinking bottled water and was immediately available in my system.
Within a few minutes of drinking one serving, my anxiety began reducing. It was so benign that I thought perhaps it was just my own thoughts that were calming me down—my belief that it would help. My anxiety continued for another hour until slowly the tincture began taking effect. It has no flavor the tincture had a sweet weird flavor I didn't like and is easy to drink. I only used 4 bottles to help me through my withdrawal. I don't use it now, but I will if I have anxiety in the future.
I am impressed with how helpful it was in my withdrawal. I think it would help in withdrawal from cigarettes too. I did that 34 years ago though. Are you willing to share what you're anxiety is about? I had panic and anxiety attacks for years and used Ativan and later Lorazepam for them, especially when I had to fly in planes. I only had it again recently during my withdrawal process. I know my relief from anxiety is from the Citalopram.
I even did 7 zip lines in Costa Rica a little over a year ago. My flights there, to Panama and back were anxiety free.
That has been so incredible for me! I love traveling now. Please let me know if you have questions,. I also hope others on Mayo Connect will let you know their experiences with CBD and Marijuana as medical alternative treatments. Liked by angus , missme , annedodrill44 , kygirl Jump to this post. I also have been curious about the product, but there are lots of sellers on Amazon, but I hate to purchase a supplement that I don't know anything about the seller.
Most of them you can find some pretty good lists of sellers that have good reputations. If you could give a brand name that you used and liked, I would appreciate it. If that is something that needs to be a PM, that will be fine. Liked by Gail, Volunteer Mentor. I started on Zoloft, then celexa, then Effexor. Finally my primary doctor thought it could be the Effexor since that is one of the side effects.
So we decided that I would wean off the Effexor and try Wellbutrin instead. After 3 days of no Effexor the withdrawals seemed to hit me. Headaches, nausea, extremely emotional, and bad dizziness. I had an important event to go to on day 3 of no Effexor so I took a low dose I felt decent for a couple days then boom, the withdrawal symptoms came on fully again.
My daughter mentioned the CBD oil which I was totally against at first but after doing a lot of research I am now quite interested in it. I am not positive if I suffer from depression or anxiety. All I know is that I tend to be extremely emotional and have anger fits easily and often. The anti-depressants did help somewhat. My husband will definitely agree!! I live in California where Marijuana is legal.
You may need a Marijuana prescription depending on the state you live in. You can Google the brand name and find out about it. Liked by Jim, Volunteer Mentor , kindred1. I think you need to let your doctor know what is going on with you first. Gail B Volunteer Mentor.
Liked by Parus , lalyfa. With some of the dreadful reactions I have had to medications I mostly say no to drugs. The psychotropics turn me psycho. I read about addictions and have been through thus…I went off cold turkey with pain medication, antidepressants, anti psychotics, anti anxiety…I do not care to go through anything like that again. If I can get something stronger than an OTC I only want a low dose and do not want to go through what I did in again.
This is where I am currently. Maybe my pain is not as severe as pain is for others.
