I Need Anxiety/Panic Support Friends
I'm having a really rough time right now as some of you may know. I suffer daily with really bad anxiety and panic attacks. My anxiety and panic got so bad, I developed agoraphobia. I was on Prozac for many years and went off of it because it wasn't helping me anymore. My anxiety and panic returned. My psychiatrist put me on 3 other meds but they made me feel worse and I had terrible side affects from them. I have not been on any medication for 4 months now. My doctor would like for me to try going back on Prozac again. I filled my prescription with the name brand version of Prozac this time hoping that the name brand will work for me since I was on the generic prior. The medication is sitting there and I am so confused about starting Prozac again. I do not see my doctor again until Sept. My dr. Tells me that i'm pretty much at the end of help with ssri's-boy, that makes me feel better! maybe I should see another dr. Before going back on the Prozac, what do you,think? I was taking up to 4 prozac pills a day @ 20mg each.The bottle says I should take 4 per day, but shouldn't I gradually work up to 4? Does anyone know what I should do? Should I take only 1 pill and see how I feel? I forgot how long to wait until I add more pills to the one(s) I'm taking?
I'm just not feeling right at all. Last night was really bad for me. I woke up at 3a.m. In a panic. I started pacing the floors. I knew my husband had to get up at 5am and I didn't want to wake him up, but I couldn't help it. I needed someone to talk to. I am so scared of the thoughts I keep having that something bad is going to happen to me, ie., that I'm going to go insane, lose my mind, and I just cry and cry.
If anyone else is dealing with debilitating anxiety and panic attacks and could use a friend to talk to, please msg. Me. Maybe we could talk and help each other through this together. I could really use some support.
Thanks for reading.
