Quoting GodLovingMom:" I have a history of different kinds of anxiety and I would say I'm having the worse of them all. I have ... [snip!] ... I can't talk to either of my doctors till Monday. I need to try to get rid of this anxiety and get sleep somehow. :("


I was also on clonazepam before I found out I was prego.I have been on it since I was 16 and I am now 27. It was very diffucult for me and still is. My dr proscribed me vistril it helps with panic disorders and to help me sleep with out it I don't think I would be able to sleep. Try some breathing exercizes. When that doesn't work I take tylenol pm and it helps me fall asleep but not stay a sleep. You can also try melatonin(sp?) it's over the counter and is all natural. I know how you feel. Hope it gets better for you. GL

I have the target off brand and I think it 25 mgs usually I just take one. I took two a few days ago and it still took me awhile to get to sleep. I need to be able to sleep by tonight!!! I have now been awake for 24 hours.. I don't know how I will be able to eat anything today. I'm gonna drink water and hope to hold it down and of course I been crying a lot to cause I feel so uneasy with everything and scared.



Why can't tgere be any miracle drug for anxiety that's safe for pregnancy.

When I was preg, they gave me 50mg prn... it does take a while, usually I would take meds, take warm/hot shower and drink chamomille tea... by the time I was done with tea I felt sleepy...



I've had anxiety since I was 13ish... I'm 27 now... been on everything... sucks... sometimes I can't take full deep breaths and nothings even going on :( it just happens... I have to stand up squat down and try to breath in, takes a while but I can do it eventually -_____- my poor kids... they know I'm crazy :/

Prn: as needed



Jades almost 3, she will come over and ask if I'm gonna cry lol, if I can stop it I will just sit there... she sits in front of me and paws like a cat untill I paw back at her... most days she's the 1 that triggers the attacks lol, but she can help me when its not her that is *freaking* me out...

Oh! You took clonazapam or benedryl? We're you pregnant? I just took two benedryl in hopes to get any amount of sleep before tonight then I gotta get to sleep tonight too. I hope this work. I tryed to lay down for awhile and I could get to sleep STILL. Anxiety is vicious.

When I was preg, they switched me to 50mg of benedryl, as needed,



Every night I drank chamomille tea and took hot showers... that was usually enough to wind me down if I had a regular day...



Are u having anxiety attacks daily?? Or u just can't sleep...
