Anxious: Sorting out meds for pain and anxiety

Posted by girl4god @girl4god, Jul 17, 2021

Has anyone here suddenly been pulled off there opioid meds because they are also taking anxiety meds? Only Hemp CBD oil where I live. I think it’s helping my bone pain. This new doctor made me feel so bad about my anxiety meds that I’m trying to take less of it even though I get it from behavioral health provider. Pain doctor the other day said it sounds like I need my anxiety meds more than pain meds right now. Also if I fail my drug screen I’ll be breaking my pain contract…even though Hemp is legal now. This doctor said we’d taper slowly but does 10 mg decrease of Oxycodone a month seem slow when you’ve been on it for 8 years? I’ve always been a model patient and followed the rules til now. #I think my doctor is trying to kill me!Lol

Most anxiety meds don't work that way."When" you are fortunate to have found one that works it has to be taken regularly and may take up to 6 weeks to take effect.

Antidepressants can take up to six weeks to work. Benzodiazepines work within 30 minutes or less. Antidepressants are really worthless for debilitating anxiety in my opinion.
