Im Lizzy, im new on here and its nice to see others are in the same boat as me. I have been put on citalopram and beta blockers 3 weeks ago for anxiety. Since then I have had my nan die, my boyfriend break up with me cos of the anxiety and negative thoughts he says its too depressing to be with someone on meds and he feels so much better not being around me and my brother left for america who i am very close to. I feel so alone. I have been getting really bad anxiety from the antidepressants to the point i cant leave the house, nausea, headaches, night sweats etc i thought it was getting better but it was only for a few days. I had a complete meltdown yesterday trying to be at work. Had counselling in thr evening which didnt help. I dont feel myself and its really scaring me. Will these meds ever actually help?
