Have tried valeriana and other herbal stuff for sleep but none worked just that Swim would wake up in the middle of the night anxious and in sweat. Xanax
was no so effective either. However 0.5 mg Clonazapem had given Swim 2 good and relaxing nights and sure would want to keep it that way.
Swim doesn't really know what else would help, she doesn't know enough about natural remedies.
But she does know that anxiety is usually a symptom of a deeper problem. Is there no way swiys doc
can refer them for counseling, or perhaps to a psychologist? Benzo
's are not usually a good long term solution.
Swim is aware that due to location and cost this might be unfeasible, does swiy have anyone they trust they can talk to.
Talking, and off loading problems can be cathartic, and swim found this quite helpful.
Also identifying what it is that actually causes the anxiety and working out strategies to cope also helps.
Hope something swim has suggested has helped.
