I have used lexapro for anxiety and it has been OK. I also take it for my depression... I never asked, but I guess it treats both? However, after discussing it in another forum, I think Lexapro is causing me to have low sex drive.
I have had a good results with CBD and Kratom for anxiety also. Not so much with depression, but they both seem to take the edge off of me. I do not know why, but Kratom has been cuasing me some bad headaches.

I have taken xanax for when I would have really bad panic attacks. However, I no longer use that medication. I try to self medicate mostly with CBD (I do have kratom also). I also have Cymbalta.

How are you today? Have you seen this older discussion?
How do you manage your anxiety? Have you tried any medications - antidepressants (Cymbalta, Paxil, Zoloft...), anxiolytics (Xanax, Klonopin...) or antiepileptics (Lyrica)? What about therapy or alternative treatments? How have they worked for you?
