It has been 5 weeks since I started taking new meds for anxiety and depression. It has also been 5 weeks since I was able to work or have my kids stay with me. I have terrible morning anxiety and try meditation to relax. I have always had anxiety but was able to control with Paxil for 20 years. I don’t think the paxil was working anymore. My phycologist put me on new meds. Effexor XR, Wellbutron and Lamictal. Was taking fir 2 weeks and was not getting better so he doubled the dosage on all the meds. It has now been 2 weeks and I have only seen a small improvement. I have trouble sleeping and can not function in the morning without taking an Adivan. It feels like I am living in a nightmare and now I am having trouble urinating. I feel I am going crazy. I just want this to be over. I do mediation, journaling, see a theropist, set goals etc. when will the suffering end? I love my kids and want them with me but I can’t even take care of myself. Any help would be appreciated.
