You really need to start taking those Paxil, hun. They will help you start being able to sort through all these feelings you're going through. If you can't follow through on the treatment that's been advised to you by numerous doctors there's not much more anyone else can do for you. I hate to be so blunt but it's the truth. Please start on the antidepressants or at the very least look for a therapist the can help you learn some natural coping remedies. Force yourself to take slow deep breaths when you're feeling this way. You can also take magnesium from the Vitamin section at the pharmacy and it naturally helps to calm your body. Start with 200 mg and slowly work up to 400.

Oh, Johnnie, so sorry to hear you're still having so much trouble with your feelings and your heart beating, and so on.

Have you ever checked back your doctor about how you won't take the medication prescribed because you are afraid of it? Is that because you had smoked some weed five months ago and then you start to have these probelems? I don't know if that caused this or if smoking the weed was just a coincidence.

Your anxiety is not lessening the way you are going. You deserve a better life. Won't you please consider trying the medication? Really don't believe it will make you any worse than you are. But please remeber it takes a few days for medications to take affect. And please don't drink alcohol or already learned that you became very anxious after you drank at the club.

Some people who have a drink believe it relaxes them, but the way alcohol works in your body, it can actually be the opposite. And the RedBull I'm familiar with is very high in caffiene which causes a reaction like 'speed'....and that you certainly don't need with your anxiety.

You are a strong young adult and will make your own decisions, and I support you in that. But the medication prescribed by your doctor doesn't seem it could make things any worse than they are. Hope you make the decision to finally start taking it.

We all here for you. ok?


Yeah idk if it was the weed because that was a long time ago but i guess it gave me a panic disorder and anxiety because this the first time i experince this before that day i smoke i was always good having fun im just worried because these symthoms is mostly 24/7 and it makes something is really wrong with me and the docters dont know yet like it just seems wierd to me why after 5months im still this the weed been left my system but its like i have really bad nerves and physcal symthoms. and yes im a little a nervous to takes the meds because say if its not anxiety and something is wrong and im taking those meds for no reason


Dear Johnnie,

You over think things. I do that sometimes, and I have to stop myself.

You know weed's chemical residue isn't stored in your body fat for five months if you haven't smoked it since then. So I think you know in your own head that isn't causing anxiety now. It may have triggered something else in your life that happened or was happening at the time you smoked it last and that's want is causing the anxiety now.

Paxil isn't going compound the weed effect that occurred 5 months ago.

Most likely it's going to work the way your doctors think...relief.

Ok, please make a decision to take the meds or call your doctor and talk to him about it. We really can't help you more than to listen, and we will. But you aren't likely to get any different suggestions from us. We're not doctors, we are your support.

I need to go now. But I watch for your posts. :)


Alright thank you for being here and listening to me have a great day and ill keep that in mind .🙌🏻💯
