Morning anxiety

So I thought I was doing better lately and then all of a sudden my morning anxiety is back! I wake up at 5-5:3am with heart palps and feeling of adrenaline rushing through my body,hot flashes, shakiness, dizziness. This will last on and off all morning. I am so over this I have been on 10mg of lexapro down from 20mg for 10weeks. I should have stabilized by now. I have an appt with a new psych dr on Monday and it can't come soon enough as I am at a loss for what to do. Is the lexapro not working anymore do I need something else and why do I have this morning anxiety still. I feel like I am never going to get back to normal...

  • Well at least it's only the morning that troubles you. Think positives!

    Maybe you need to increase your ad again or add in another treatment

  • The reason why I always happens early hours of the morning it's because of the same as people have heart attacks off it's your platelets get thicker and your body has to work that little bit harder and is also and adrenaline that is released first thing in the morning to get your body up ready for the day so what I would do it set an alarm to wake you up for 4 o'clock in the morning do this for like 3 or 4 days then switching alarm off then you have a good night's sleep and not wake up with the anxiety because anxiety comes from the brain when the brain convinces the body is in trouble so if you train your body that at 3 o'clock or 4 o'clock in the morning that you're going to wake up because this is love it will wait to hear the alarm and it's slowly start to wake you up and then what happened is the alarm won't go off and then you'll wake up not from a deep sleep but your wake up from a sleep that is more later would you give you less anxiety for your brain try that let me know how it goes it worked for my friend so I'm wondering I might wait for you

  • Thank you I will

  • You should just accept it, shrug your shoulders and think " Oh well, may be it's just a one off " move on and try not to over think the situation
