Ugh my psychiatrist put me on new meds and it's been about 3 weeks, each day I feel more and more anxious. Today I was petrified from 7 am until now, and then I got super depressed and started thinking all of these negative thoughts about how I'm going crazy/going to die/going to end up in a mental hospital for the rest of my life etc. I couldn't even think of anything positive and I was crying so hard I thought I was going to die. I couldn't breathe or think anything except that my life was over. I can't tell what's me and what's the medicine. I don't want to go off of it because I'm scared of withdrawals. I wish I'd never gone on it in the first place. The idea of having chemicals change my brain really scares me, especially since they always seem to negatively affect me. Do you think I could die? I am on three meds. My psychiatrist is really smart and people say good things about him. If I wean off all of them will I die? Could I die from being on them? None are benzos.
