Hi All- I’m New here. But I need some help.
I’ve taken anxiety medicine in and off for the last three years. I really started taking it on schedule for about the last year. I thought I was doing well because I was more agreeable, didn’t worry so much or internally feel just terrible. I thought my dosage was on point and I was proud of myself for getting in the routine.
My fiancé had a different idea about it though. From his perspective I became more of a zombie. I was tired all the time, had little energy or motivation, sex drive lowered... basically my personality diminished a little.
I’ve been off the meds for about three weeks consistently now. While some things have improved- my energy level, need for less sleep, sex drive is up... but my moods are all over the place. I’ve gotten frustrated so much easier. I’ve been more ‘snippy’ with him. My mood can change in a split second based on something stupid. Then after that happens I spend the rest of the day dwelling on it.
Has anyone else experienced this? I’m just trying to decide if I can’t live medicine free, if i just need to give it more time, or if I just need to suck it up- lol.
Any input is GREATLY appreciated!
