Suggestions for severe anxiety medication that would give me energy instead of making me want to sleep? I'm always tired/sleepy now! Help please

Suggestions for severe anxiety medication that would give me energy instead of making me want to sleep? I'm always tired/sleepy now! Help please

Alternatives: It sounds like you're going through a tough time right now ... Unfortunately the most efficacious medications for anxiety are sedating because of the neurotransmitters they affect. I'd suggest talking to a psychologist and perhaps talking to your doctor about less sedating alternatives (such as Pristiq). Also, try dosing your current medication at night to see if that works. Hope that helps! ...Read more

Disturbing: These symptoms are too non-specific to allow an opinion for cause, but they are sufficiently severe to warrant a full detailed assessment by a pcp. It is not possible to know whether this has an organic basis or a psychological one, but a good clinician should be able to work this out. Good luck and hope you get better soon. ...Read more
