    1. We can choose to cope or deal with anxiety or we can modify our behavior to overcome our symptoms of anxiety, fear, or panic.

    One of the ways in which we are able to reduce the fear sensations power over us and our lives is by added intentional exposure to the fear. By confronting the sensations that we attribute and link to anxiety we can decrease the power it has over us. This practice is called Interoceptive exposure.

    2. Interoceptive exposure is the repeated exposure to feared physical stimuli as well as fear physical sensations. Some of these practices include breathing through a narrow straw to achieve hyperventilation or "Over-breathing." Spinning around in a circle while standing or sitting in a swivel chair. To increase heart rate and create disorientation.

    As strange as it sounds, causing anxiety, fear, and panic sensations has a positive effect on people suffering from anxiety disorders or panic attacks. Interoceptive exposure exercises are intended to guide anxiety sensitive people to awareness of their feared experience, and to challenge their understanding of the power those sensations have over them. These are nothing new when it comes to the history of tips to treat anxiety symptoms and they get really good results.

    I listed a source below that goes over this in more detail. Stay strong and I wish you the best!

    Yes there are medications although they are addictive they don't make a person sociable but they do help with social anxiety. As does regular Relaxation training such as hypnosis or Yoga or Tai Chi. And that means because they're not addictive like medication can be relaxation training is the best. Great Question.

    This is a hard one to answer. The medicine that works for my body may not work for your body and so on. So it may take some trial and error before you find what works for you.

    I was told that Lexapro was a great medication, but it only made me worse. However, I am on doxycycline which has not harmed me at all, but I have been in forums where others say it made them worse.

    Are you having panic attacks with your anxiety? That should be a factor in finding your medication. For me, I only started having anxiety and panic attacks after I was put on effexor.

    While you are searching, there are some cool herbal teas, scents, and breathing techniques you can use for you overall anxiety.

    But I think your best bet would be to post the name of your medications here or go to anxiety forums and do a search for your medications to see what others have said about them.

    No such thing as side effect free medication. All Benzodiazepines are fast acting and powerful, but are highly addictive if taken longer than a couple of weeks.
