essential oils?

Momwifedaughter profile image

anyone have any experience with any of these working to help them? I am currently taking zoloft and a xanax xr every now and then. I am looking to supplement with something like essential oils or magnesium to help with my anxiety.

I've been taking zoloft ever since the first grade for my anxiety and depression. They had started giving me xanax about two years ago. It helps me a lot with my depression and anxiety, and makes me feel emotionless which is good because I am always sad. But, if I don't take them for a few days I get withdraw symptoms like headaches, dizziness, sick stomach, and twitches.

just started taking magnesium citrate at night for my insomnia..I think its too early to notice anything yet...but I will keep you posted. I also use lavender essential oil --I find it calming at bedtime.

Thank you for your reply.

Hi momwifedaughter

I take the 'deep sleep stress less' essential oil, You can find them in Boots drug store or Amazon. They are amazing and really keep me calm and collective, I have the greatest nights sleep too. Its a calm natural lavender smell.
