I am in my third year at university and have had a lot of time off throughout because of my anxiety. I have been trying to get better for a long time, but when I end up feeling like I can attend uni It never stays for longer than a couple of weeks. I then get really bad again and can't attend for ages. Since coming back to my home town for Christmas I have been put on an anti depressant called lustral. I was taking 100mg a day but they gave me HORRIFIC panic attacks where I was begging to be taken to hospital.... so i stopped taking that after 4 days. After that I still got panic attacks but slowly have been able to stop them getting out of hand.... but I am left with this scared feeling all the time. I was convinced I was going to die of an asthma attack (I don't have asthma... I hope) or heart attack. I still am a bit. I worry about dying a lot now, and I just feel like something really bad is going to happen. I can't do my uni work, I feel like i'm at a bit of a dead end. I'm seeing the doctor tomorrow again, just wondered if I could pick up any advice on here?
