Has anyone else had real issues with antidepressants?
I've had bad anxiety since the end of October And I have been off work since this time.
I have tried Sertraline and Citalopram but had bad side effects and had to stop. Tried propranolol to help with the palpitations but had side effects from that.
In desperation the GP put me on Amiltriptyline on Friday. Have taken a tiny dose but today can't even stand up properly due to dizziness and awful 'brain fog' so don't see how I'm going to tolerate these.
I'm getting so worried as I need to get back to work. They have been really supportive but I think patience is now running out! I just don't see how I can manage. I went in for a morning last week and had a complete meltdown and bad anxiety for 3 days afterwards.
I'm on week 6 of counselling/CBT. I'm having some good times now but work is definitely a big stumbling block.
Is anyone else on this anxiety journey medication free??
