Hi, I'm a 57-year-old male and have been suffering with anxiety/depression/stress for a few years now. I was on escitalopram and various others and have now - on doctor's orders - stopped them a couple of months ago. I am now feeling horrendously anxious/stressed out, with tiredness, worry, abdominal twinges, paranoid, acheing all over, sadness etc etc. I am just about to start seeing a therapist re. CBT. I'm very sceptical but hopeful this may help. I do not want to go back to those awful anti-depressants if at all possible. Is there anything else I can try? Hypnotherapy any good? I'm at a loss as to what to do, but I just cannot put up with feeling like this. HELP anyone? Thank you, Mike.
