The Emperor Posted February 18, 2009 Share Posted February 18, 2009 Okay, I know I should call my doctor, but the office is closed and I don't know what to do. This is my fifth day on 50mg sertraline at bedtime. Last night I got a whopping TWO hours of sleep. The past couple of days I have been waking up and having a full bown panic attack. I fall asleep at night initially but wake up several hours later with health anxiety or any kind of anxiety really. I feel freaking sedated all day, I rarely feel like food consumption and I guess today I am feeling very. . . unstable, I mean, I feel worse today than I have in a long time. I was having a panic attack for about an hour this morning and pretty intense anxiety all day long. I cried a lot earlier in the morning and felt like I couldn't go about my day, but I had to to take care of my little girl. I did all right and got through it, but it really really sucks and I DON'T feel right at all and I am thinking I should stop taking this drug. I was pretty depressed because of all the anxiety this morning. Is this kind of thing supposed to happen or not? Because I just won't take it tonight if this crap is going to continue much longer. I can barely be bothered to speak and often feel like I am going to die and I don't know what to do about the next week because my baby's dad is having surgery where he'll be home, but unable to help for the next week or so. I don't know if I am doing the right thing. Usually I take it between 11PM and 2AM and by 5PM the next day, I ALMOST feel human again. Still anxious. I have an RX for .5mg clonazapam, but I only have twenty of those. Is that going to help me calm down? I don't know what they do. What would you do? Thanks if anyone can give me advice.
