I have been on a cocktail of medications from the VA for GAD , depression and PTSD over many years as a out patient. Stay away from benzo's they are poison horrible withdraws . I get my best medicine by exercising mainly hiking and walking everyday. It really works . Also cognitive therapy also . I think over all the years I have been on so many psy medications I have a certain amount of CNS damage . Best bet stay natural
I know that certain things work for some people and won't work at all for others. I came on to this forum for several reasons - but I did want to hear what worked for other people. I know exercise works for a lot of people. Spending time with nature. Yoga, meditation, counseling, group therapy, etc. I also know meds work for people. I had a horrible trip on meds - yo yo effect. So I started trying alternative remedies. Exercise is important to me. Getting proper rest. Meditation. I want to get more into yoga. I have heard other people have found that as effective.
