Less Stress Now: Check Your Medicine Cabinet

Did you know that many common prescription and over-the-counter medications can have anxiety as a side effect?Pills, pills
 

I ran across a list the other day of 100+ medications that can cause anxiety, including some medications for depression, sleeping problems/insomnia AND some anti-anxiety drugs! Also included are drugs used for many common medical conditions such as high blood pressure and heartburn.

Read the labels on all prescription and over-the-counter medications and check whether anxiety or anxiety-like symptoms are listed as possible side effects. It could be that taking a common medication is contributing to your anxiety.

Do I really need ALL my medications???
