I'm brand new to this community and my sole purpose for joining is to share something with those looking for an alternative to pharmaceutical anxiety medications. I've had anxiety and depression for most of my life (I'm now 32) and when I felt I could bare it no longer, I began taking Paxil. It helped subdue my symptoms for the 12 years I was taking it, but I recently discovered I'm expecting my first baby. At my doctor's recommendation, and upon my own research I decided to quit taking the medication cold turkey as opposed to weaning off. I've been Paxil free for two weeks now and the withdrawal symptoms, in combination with my raging hormones have made my life utterly miserable. Until today. I went to my local health food store and explained my current state and that I'm in desperate need for a natural anxiety remedy. The staff member recommended "Bach Rescue Remedy Pastilles" to alleviate my suffering and bingo! The results were almost instantaneous and I'm already feeling back to the way I felt while on Paxil, except I now know I am safe from any future unbearable withdrawal symptoms, as well as protecting my growing baby from the harmful chemicals in the medication. I HIGHLY recommend anyone looking for a natural alternative to prescription anxiety medications to try any of the "Bach Rescue Remedy" products. *I have no affiliation with this brand, I am just an overly relieved mother-to-be and long time anxiety sufferer who has found a bright light and wanted to share*
