This is my first time on a forum but I will try and keep to the point. I have been suffering from anxiety and depression for 4 years now after a personal trauma. I refused help to start with and found my answer at the bottom of a bottle. I did go finally and get help after the reality of losing my family kicked in. I got prescribed mertazapine last year but I put so much weight on that was something else to worry about so I came of them, stopped drinking and felt great. Until Xmas and I stupidly hit the bottle with epic proportions. Well I went back to the docs and was prescribed sertraline, stopped drinking for 5 months then in my wisdom stopped taking them again. Well I've been back on the sertraline for about 6 weeks and stopped drinking again but this weekend I had massive massive anxiety issues, and we'll you know what's coming I decided the bottle was the only answer, ive stopped again now but the massive anxiety is there, I haven't left my room well only to go the toilet and haven't been eating, I have weak legs and tingling hands, insomnia and I know I have caused this myself in part due to drinking but I also know it isnt just that. Do you think the massive anxiety I'm experiencing could be due to the doc doubling my tablets. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
