What is a good natural remedy for anxiety disorders?
I’ve pretty much been on and off meds my whole life since the age of six, among other things I’m diagnosed with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Generalized Anxiety Disorder, and more recently I’m having anxiety related symptoms of depression. I recently opted to get back on Fluoxetine, but I hate the feeling of being drugged, and I kind of feel like it doesn’t really help with my anxiety, more like masks it. Makes me feel half asleep and wide awake at the same time, and makes it difficult to concentrate. Plus I’m concerned with what long term effects it may be having on my health, particularly reproductive. Can anyone recommend any legal, relatively safe alternatives, such as a herbal remedy? I just feel like there’s got to be something better out there, instead of the expensive, addictive crap that big pharma pushes.
I’ve gotten so many great suggestions that I will be researching/trying. Thank you so much for your help!
