I'm new here. I have some severe anxiety lately cause of my menopause but I have always been an anxious person. In my late 20s I suffered from a few episodes of panic attacks, really bad ones. I was on Xanax for a year and after I stopped them I was doing really well for a few years.
Anxiety came back 3 years ago , now I'm 50. My symptoms are palpitations, rapid breathing, feelings of danger, dizziness, light-headedness, chest pains and others...
I hate taking medicines, any medicines, I have the phobia of what side effects will cause me even a paracetamol. Weird yeah
do you feel the same about medicine phobia?
I' m so bad with that I will google my prescriptions to find the side effects and other info. I have a collection of antidepressants GP has prescribed me and I never took them, how to overcome that? Im afraid I will need some medications one day and I will be terrified
