Hi... first post here, looking for some encouragement (aren’t we all).
The last few years I have dealt with anxiety, the physical symptoms for me are the worst. My body becomes very hypersensitive to everything and of course the hamster wheels spins in my head...”will this ever get better”.
I’ve been on lexapro 3 separate times. I switched a month ago to fluoxetine because I felt I wasn’t getting any better on the third round of lexapro (genetic).
I’m 1 month into fluoxetine and my anxiety is super heightened, I know this is normal but honestly hearing someone else’s story or that this is normal would help. Sometimes I wonder if my body truly is lacking chemicals and do I really need SSRI’s or should I give up and go all natural. I haven’t experience this switch of “oh my gosh I feel so much better” with SSRI’s. I just want my life back, to feel normal and not have to think about how crappy I feel every other minute. My trust is in the Lord but this is truly a battle I am tired of fighting. Can anyone give me advice on their experience with SSRI’s. What symptoms did you feel going on medication and how long. Any encouragement would be great! Thanks!!!
