Is there a safe anti-anxiety drug I can take while breastfeeding?

A:  Benzodiazepines are usually used for short-term use or as needed use for anxiety. Benzodiazepines include Xanax (alprazolam), Ativan (lorazepam), and Valium (diazepam). Benzodiazepines are typically excreted into human breast milk in small amounts. The manufacturer of these products does not recommend use while breastfeeding. Sometimes antihistamines such as Benadryl (diphenhydramine) are also used. Unfortunately, these products can also be excreted into the breast milk and use is not recommended. Consult with a physician about the risk of taking these medications or possible other alternatives to take while breastfeeding.

Can taking anti-depressants and anti-anxiety drugs lower your intelligence?

A: It sounds like what you''re taking isn''t working out so well if it''s leaving you in a haze. You should talk to your Dr. about how the medication is affecting you. Generally, no those drugs do not lower your intelligence. No, of course not!!! No they don''t I am on them and have been for a number of years and they do not affect me in this way I was still able to go to university get a first degree in both subjects and do a job where I have to use my intelligence in all aspects of my job. I think that what you are experiencing is probably to do with your illness and not the medication. the side effect of feeling foggy or sleepy is something you need to let your physician know about. it might be the wrong dose. but neither or those symptoms decreases intelligence....


which out of the listed anti anxiety drugs has the LEAST affect on the sexual drive

A: Debbie   Thank you for your question and welcome to anxietyConnection.com.   I am not a medical professional and would not be able to give you medical advice.   Because everyone reacts differently to medications, it would be impossible to say how you would react to each medication. If you have not already done so, you should discuss this side effect with your physician. He or she may want to adjust your dosage or have you try another medication to see if your ability to climax returns.     Frequently Asked Questions About antidepressants   Eileen...

I''m 36 year old, no family history of breast cancer, BRCA1 and BRCA2 negative.Was recently diagnosed with DCIS. During lumpectomy, surgeon found a microinvasion, 1 mm. Second opinion on path report deemed it 3.5 mm.I''m ER/PR positive.4 lymph nodes taken out were clear.Angiolymphatic fluid was clear.Cancer was grade 2.I''m currently scheduled for another reexcision, to be followed by radiation if it is successful.My question is, is there a chance I could already have brain mets? My ears have been plugged, and I have a weird feeling on one side of my head. It''s hard to know if it''s stress-related, or side effects of antidepressant or stomach pill I''m on, or the anti-anxiety drug. Anyway, my oncologist said that with my profile it would be extremely unlikely for me to have brain mets, and that my insurance likely wouldn''t cover a brain MRI. Is it best to pay out of pocket for a brain MRI just for peace of mind, or am I really worrying too much about this?I don''t know how long the cancer had been in me. I had never had a mammogram before I found the suspicious lump in December. (Had a baby in 2/04 and breastfed him until 7/05, so I wasn''t doing breast self exams during that time.

A: the possibility of brain mets based on what you have described is highly remote... don''t let your body (and mind) play tricks on you......

what is best anti anxiety drug fo 56 year old woman

A: Sue Thank you for your question and welcome to anxietyConnection.com.   It sounds as if you are in a very difficult situation. I don''t think I would take my grandson to visit, as you never know whether the visit will go well or not. It could end up making him feel even worse. Instead, I would continue to love and care for him and help him cope with the fact that his mother has her own problems and needs to deal with those. As heartbreaking as it may be, it sounds as if your grandson is in a home where he has people that love him with him each day.   I understand you are looking for the best anxiety medication, but it is impossible to say which medication that would be. Each person reacts differently to medication and...


What short-term anti- anxiety drug has the least side effects and which would be recommended?

A: Hi Sandra,   I am not sure there is a short term medication for anxiety. If I understand correctly, your man is going to have Transurethral Needle Ablation. Transurethral needle ablation (TUNA) is a simple, safe, and relatively inexpensive procedure using needles to deliver high-frequency radio waves that heat and destroy prostate tissue. You can read more about the procedure here, and basically it is considered to be one of the less invasive and more simple treatments for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia.   The best thing to do is speak to the doctor and let the doctor know that the anticipation of this surgical procedure is affecting your 85 year old adversly. If there is something that can be prescribed short term, the...
