Pounding Heart

Hi, I have always suffered from anxiety and dperession but just recently have become sort of 'hyper' my heart just pounds all the time, I can't concentrate and feel agitated, I also take hours to go to sleep as lay there thoughts racing and heart pounding etc! My question is does anyone know if any remedies that can 'calm' things down so to speak as it is quite exhausting!

I did recently switich medicastion from duloxetime to sertraline so don't know whether this has made it worse, although my mood has lifted!

Many Thanks!
