Hello Carenity Members,
Managing COPD can be stressful and cause anxiety. Of course, if such anxiety becomes extreme, we recommend reaching out to a professional, but what are some tips or strategies you recommend for handling stress and anxiety?
I am actually prescribed Celexa, but I also practice pursed-lip breathing to help gain control of my anxiety. I tend to get anxiety spells when I begin to think about having COPD and when I become worried about having a spell where it is difficult to breathe.
I am Prescribed 1mg of Ativan 2 times a day as needed Its a Pretty Mild Med for me anyway Can't really tell if it helps or not
@EdBalunas, what kind of medicine is Ativan? is it for anxiety? I have tried celexa and it seemed to help.
I am also on celexa; seems to help, but what has helped the most is walking and doing mild exercise daily!
