User :   From alcohol consumption, lack of sleep, 3 cups of coffee today, already prone to anxiety/panic attacks, and dont eat regulary very well.
I am on medication for depression, anxiety, and ADD, so i take- Celexa, klonopin, and adderoll daily. Its been the best combination ive
found. Over the last 3 years, I have tried many things and they did not help. My adderoll, a form of salt ampetamine, makes me
crash at about 5 in the evening, where i feel irratable, low, just not good. So i tend to drink a little to take that edge off. And it does.
I know this is a low blood sugar attack. Ive had them before, doctors have already agreeded.
My immediate question is-
What is the best fastest working, home remedy?? I cannot drive, im shaking, my face is pulsating, i feel slow and confused,
shaking, feel very nervous, faint, and about to fall into a panic attack....
i dont know how i am even writing this. but i have no money to pay for a hospital or paramedics, as i know what theyll give me.
its happened before, and then i get a 800 bill.
OK SORRY, REALLY THE QUESTION- what can i take right now?? Honey? Syrup?? i have no orange juice.
White sugar?? Ive already had a bananna, activia yogurt, milk, and spoonfull of honey. Nothing is helping,
im so faint, please help, im FREAKING OUT, my vision is weird, i feel about to pass out
i need to fix the glucose level now
