Is Vistaril a better non-addictive alternative to Valium for anxiety?
I would not recommend Vistaril
I have read your question and I understand your concern. I am glad that this condition has not affected your sleep and appetite, and I would recommend some ways to relieve the anxiety and the frustration accumulated in your life.
Go out for a walk. It is very healthy and it may also keep your mind busy.
Read a book. Find some interesting genre that attracts your curiosity. You can also explore audiobooks.
Keep a journal. Writing down how you feel has shown to have a very good effect on depression and anxiety.
Find new hobbies. Keeping yourself busy may help.
Drink chamomile tea and don't take coffee.
As far as it concerns drugs, valium is highly addicting, and vistaril has shown different side effects and is not for prolonged use, like your case.
I would recommend something bio that has no side effects and that is not addicting like Adaptol 300mg. Ask in the closest drugstore for it. It is sold OTC.
Hope I have answered your question. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.
Wish you good health!
Dear Mr. XXXXXXX
I apologize for the inconvenience of recommending a drug that is not sold in the U.S.
Celexa (citalopram) 20mg would be the drug of choice in your case. But these are prescription drugs, and I wanted to recommend you something over the counter, and something with less side effects.
You can take this drug, and its effect will be more strong around the 3rd-4th week. Your anxiety will be under control.
But above all, in your case, I would recommend therapy. See a therapist, or talk to a friend. Try not to keep all your doubts, anger, fears and stresses inside you.
Wish you good health!
