Anxiety worsens at night

My anxiety seems to get worse the closer it gets to bedtime. Which then usually results in my giving myself a panic attack or some kind of crazy symptom making me think I need to go to emerg. Does anybody have any tips or something? I don’t know I’m just sick of the sleepless nights filled with anxiety attacks and sadness :(

I’ve had anxiety many nights and it does seem to get much worse at night. I take an extra Clonopin and walk around the house until I am able to sleep. Good luck and God bless. Let us know how everything goes.

Hey! Are you seeing a talk therapist? Your symptoms remind me of a trauma reaction. You might get better faster if you have someone you can share your feelings with.

I know how u feel. My anxiety is unbearable at night, I end up in tears most nights because of it.

I know where mine stems from tho.

Best of luck. Hope u find a solution.

Do you take any meds at night? I take a low dose klonopin and 6mg of melatonin about an hour before I want to be asleep. Helps a lot. I would have terrible anxiety at night especially Sunday nights before the new work week. And if I have a client in or have a presentation the next day forget it. Full panic and anxiety. I would literally shake all night and not fall asleep and have to go to work like that. Since I started the meds it has helped.

I take 0.5 of lorazepam before bed but I don’t think it does much :(
