lexapro causing anxiety???!!!! 7 weeks on..come onnnn!
Howdy i'm new here,
Question. I'm on 10MG lexapro on week 7 (prescribed for anxiety!) and I never have really felt anything much either way from this stuff- (a good thing?) my anxiety continues (but perhaps not as bad?) and in some cases I wonder if if it's Lexapro causing anxiety...I feel like 7 weeks in I should be seeing results and as such I wonder if this is a wrong drug for me...I've taken it in the past and I don't really seeing it doing much either way.. The anxiety feeling is vaguely different- it's not a mind thing but a body high sort of thing- my mind is solid and not choosing to go to dark places or anxious about stupid shit, but my body anxiety is pretty significant- enough to make me lose my appetite and not want to eat, etc.... it doesn't push me enough to feel like I have to get up and go for a walk or run 500 miles or whatever...thank god..And I don't crash too hard after it goes away.. In fact sometimes I feel quite good after it disappears-- who wouldn't?
I'm trying my very very very best to not take benzos but I get so damn tired of the symptoms that I just feel like I need relief- Benzos def work and in fairly small doses- 1mg of ativan is probably overkill, .5mg xanax will relax me, and/or .5mg of klonopin....(hours later of course)...I do not take benzos daily/frequently so whatever's happening isn't a withdrawal from one..
Thank you to all,
Lithium carbonate withdrawal Seroquel
Okay this is my first forum posts. So please bear with me.
For or the last several years I have been on lithium 900mg and 1100mg broken in three doses.
I recently lost my insurance which covered the cost to be on there.
I've been withdrawaling for the last week and 2 day. (9 days total). I get the worst cold chills and feel super depressed and hopping not to spiral out of control when the maniac kicks in.
So my question is as follows...
Has as anyone else deal with this and how long did it last??
my boyfriend and i keep fighting?
I'm 19 and my boyfriend is 20, we've been dating for almost a month now (have been talking for about four) and there are some days we fight non stop. But, what's bad is, I try having a normal conversation about a conflict and he starts yelling. I have BPD, anxiety and major depression, my boyfriend has ADHD. When I try talking about something he'll get furious and yell. I'm also his first real girlfriend, he's not had a girlfriend since high school and it turns out she faked her own death. Both of us have been through our fair share of shit. I know part of the fighting is because I've not been on my meds because I lost half my bottle. I know fights can be healthy, but they're getting so stupid maybe...possibly.
we do love each other very much, and I don't want to break up....but should we really? We're both taking the time to understand the other, we have very strong personalities and are basically the type of people who take no bullshit, see no bullshit, hear no bullshit. Ironically enough my boyfriend hates confrontation. One thing I read though on various articles is that sometimes ADHD partners with non ADHD partners can end up forming the parent child dynamic. and sometimes, it feels like that. Not all days are bad, one week we faught all.week.long. it was exhausting. That time though it was really just me bitching about..everything. Another thing I don't get is why my boyfriend does something, finds out it upsets me, apologizes, and does it again. I know it isnt intentional but it bothers me still....
Help I have a cello concert
So I play cello, and I have for nearly five years. I have played in two solo concerts and several times with an orchestra. My anxiety has been steadily growing worse and I average about one panic attack per week without any stressors but I have a quartet coming up and these freak me out because if I was solo I wouldn't mess anyone else up if I screwed up timing. In an orchestra of twenty or so people, I could sink out of it if I needed to. In a quartet, however, I would screw up the other three players. Even though I play the easiest part, I can't bring myself to even look at the music or else I panic. My mom said I didn't have to do the concert but I had to tell my teacher face to face why. To me, this is nearly as bad as going up in front of all those people because my teacher is amazing and I love her. After my mom said that, I started to panic again, thinking of all the ways it could go wrong. She might not let me be her student as I miss most of the solo concerts. I really scared and this has caused me a sh*t-load of anxiety and panic attacks. What should I say? What should I do? Please help.
i've had one too many jobs. I'm aware I'm beginning to wear myself down of places I can work here. What's worse is I don't have my drivers license, or even remotely have a clue HOW to drive.
Every time I lose a job, I immediately hunt for another one. I'm beginning to think I may as well have a damn felon record (no offense to anyone who does) because I feel like with how many jobs I've quit, employers are gonna look at me twice.
I'm a very honest and hard working person, but no one wants to give me the benfit of the doubt. My disability finally has been approived, but I'm also by no means ready to live on my own. I can't. I have to have someone with me. I lost my best friend, and my boyfriend lives in universit housing. Although they are apartments, but I can't be on the lease and I technically can't move in. But they won't care. The only other issue is my parents don't know we're together.
I'm just tired of feeling like I dug myself a hole I cant escape from... its really depressesing me.
