It worked despite my doubts.
on February 4, 2014
I am diagnosed with Panic Disorder so I have some experience with anxiety. If you name a pharmaceutical drug out there for anxiety, I've probably been on it at some point. Things I've tried in the past: the benzos (Xanax, Ativan, Klonopin, Valium, etc.), SSRIs (Zoloft and Paxil), BuSpar, Temazepam, etc. These worked. Unfortunately, you often build up a tolerance to the medication (hence my switching so often) or they're very addicting. Recently my doctor discovered we are having some problems with my liver. I have no doubt my decade-long drug use had something to do with that, so I am trying to get off all pharmaceutical drugs to relieve the stress on my liver.
I went to an organic shop and a woman recommended these tablets to me when I asked her what helps for nervousness and anxiety. I had never even heard the term "homeopathic" before and had to ask her what it meant.
When I got home, I read all the reviews on here, including the one written by the man who says none of these ingredients are drugs and this produces nothing more than a placebo effect. I figured oh well. If it doesn't work, at least I tried it. So I waited for the next time I was feeling anxious or stressed and took them. I'd had a poor night's sleep the night before thanks to a barking dog and this always sets my anxiety off. I'd been feeling "off" all day and popped the two dissolvable tablets into my mouth. Within two hours I noticed I was no longer feeling bad. And this was after dealing with anxiety all day.
I've been on benzos. I know what something like Xanax feels like. I also know it works. So I know my way around anti-anxiety treatments. This does not produce that kind of effect. You won't feel "drugged." If you're thinking these tablets are going to get you high, think again. I simply noticed I was no longer anxious after dealing with a horrible day after taking them. It was almost just like a moment of clarity where you suddenly forget that you were feeling bad earlier.
I took the tablets once more under similar circumstances and had the same results. I can only assume they work. I know when I'm feeling well and when I'm not. And after dealing with Panic Disorder for years, I know a thing or two about anxiety. All I can say is that this worked for me. I have never taken it during an actual panic attack but to relieve my daily anxiety it has been effective. My advice? Just try it. I have no other experience with homeopathy and have done no research on this topic but I know my body and I know when I'm feeling good and when I'm not. And after taking drugs like Xanax, I doubt I'd be susceptible to much of a placebo effect since half the time I had to take more Xanax than I was prescribed to get relief from my anxiety. I'm thankful for my trip to the organic store and I'm sure my liver is thanking me.
