So i have finally caved and gotten meds from my psych. We have decided to stay away from meds for the first coupleof months that i was seeinghim because i have extreme sensitivity to all meds and my benzo cold turkey a year ago. severe anxiety is taking over my life. I cant leave the house cant sleep cant work.. im pretty much laying on the couch all day every day. My fear is losing control and going into psychosis. Idk why i have that fear. My dr has prescribed effexor xr 37.5 mg atarax as needed and lamictal. And i havent taken anything because i am terrified of how i will react! I dont want to go into psychosis! I dont want to end up in the hospital! I am terrified! I get the worst side effects from meds. I need to do something tho because i am almost 31 and have been dealinh with this for 6 years and it has destroyed my life. Any advice???
