I have been near bedbound recently due to anxiety-depression. My son is having a destination wedding in Costa Rico in six weeks... I am also facing dental work that needs to be done before we go. I am terrified of both which stuns me because I have had tons of dental work before and have had no real problems with travel in the past.
My Doc put me on Effexor and atavan. I tried the effexor for 2 weeks only to worsen clinging to the bed with increasing fear. More tremors and light headedness plus poor sleep. Also I had great difficulty peeing at night. The only thing thtat helped was the atavan but it is short acting. I stopped the effexor and can pee at night plus feel a little more human.
A recent webinar by a neuropsychiatrist mentioned nortriptyline for anxiety for PD... hence the question.
