Everyone has their own list of “must-dos” when it comes to taking the pain away. There’s nothing wrong with the idea of that. However, this is not a list of things that I have ever seen or heard anyone say they are doing or should be doing. This is the list I have seen and heard over and over again.
When it comes to painkillers, I have always been a fan. I think most of us can agree that the pain of taking a pill and then being stuck in bed for a few days is something that we just don’t want to go through.
On those “painkillers aren’t painkillers” note, it’s just about the same pain I felt when I was in my thirties and can remember the most terrible feeling I have of the way I was being treated. I remember what happened to me in the bath. I thought I would die anyway but I remember thinking to myself, “there’s something I can do to help me get better.
Well you know what it is, you just cant feel the pain on your own. The best you can do is help yourself. You can take in a few minutes of pure relaxation, a few deep breaths, and drink a cup of tea. These things will give you a sense of relief and a way to help you feel better. But the only way you’ll be helped is if you can find a provider that can help you.
Xanax and caffeine have become fairly popular prescription remedies for sleeping disorders. Unfortunately, they aren’t very effective, and the side effects are also not pretty. That being said, if you take a good pill, you can find yourself in a very comfortable mood. In fact, I’ve seen many studies that support the idea that the best way to relax is to sit in a comfortable chair and drink a cup of tea.
I’ve heard the opposite, and I’m pretty sure that it’s one of the main reasons why people sleep. With caffeine, you are taking the first step towards your sleep; you are not taking the second step; and you are not taking the third step.
I have done a lot of research and am quite convinced that caffeine is not the only way to relax. And while I believe that caffeine is helpful in some circumstances, I also think that there are plenty of other ways to alleviate stress and anxiety (including those that are generally much more effective). In fact, I think that what you experience as “caffeine” is actually the result of a combination of several different chemicals.
I have a long list of side effects and the most effective use of caffeine is often quite difficult and time consuming to figure out. That’s why I can’t recommend this drug as a first-line solution for anxiety.
I know that there are tons of pills out there that are marketed as the “stoic” answer to anxiety. Xanax (the brand name) is my personal favorite. I have tried it and I think its effectiveness is questionable. It is a powerful antidepressant, and in my experience, it can be extremely addictive. Xanax, like any other antidepressant, is not recommended for those with a history of heart disease or anyone taking blood thinners or anti-coagulants.
Xanax is not recommended as a general-purpose drug, however. If you are taking it as prescribed and you are concerned about addiction, it is a very serious drug and should be administered only under a physician’s supervision. Xanax is also not a good idea if you have heart conditions. It can lead to dangerously low blood pressure, seizures, and even death. Xanax can also cause your liver to fail.
