I was diagnosed with agitated clinical depression in October. I'm on 45 mg Mirtazapine and recently was also put on 100 mg Sertraline. I also take 2 x 500 mg Cocodomol. As soon as I wake up, it's like a light bulb goes on and the palpitations and panic attack start - these last till about 6 pm. I also have constant nausea and a crushed disc at the base of my spine? The GP says keep busy, eat little and often and walk (which is difficult as I have muscle weakness in my legs and my balance isn't good.
They tried Trasadone instead of Mirtazapine as I put on 2 stones in weight but I had major tremors on a low dose and am back on Mirtazapine.
I live alone and when I go to bed, feel normal and absolutely dread the following day. Before this, I was totally independent. Now, all I want to do is put my head under the duvet and not face another day.
Ddoes anyone know any good self-hypnosis CDs (or on You Tube) or any support groups I. Scotland?
