My anxiety has been so high, and have been having such frequent and intense panic attacks that my pdoc has decided I should reduce the Wellbutrin and Abilify and increase the Ativan. 
I feel like dog doo.  I didn't realize going down on meds could make you feel bad as well.  I knew going up increased the side effects but this is totally unexpected.  Has anyone else experienced this?  I can't sleep more than an hour at a time.  Hopefully this passes quickly.
Good judgement comes from experience and alot of that comes from bad judgement.

Ellie,

I am sorry that you have to go through med changes again, hopefully this one will last a long time. I know what kind of a pain it can be. Also, dealing with anxiety in itself is hard. Best wishes, and I hope it will be a smooth transition.

Ellie, I hope what you are feeling soon passes.  I know that changing meds, up or down, can really wreak havoc on the head.  Besides feeling bad due to the med change, you are also struggling through the crap that caused you to have to change the dosage in the first place.  So hang in there!

Boy do I understand, about a year ago they screwed with my meds at the behavioral health hospital (suicide attempt, too many racing thoughts) sometimes forgetting my meds after I demanded them. Anyway, once home I was a basket case. I can't believe how useless I felt and cried for a week till things balanced out and I was on new meds as well as the old ones. I always wish I knew what my brain looked like compared to a normie (normal non mentally diseased person) I bet ours would have lots of black holes in them.

I pray you feel better, I know I did but still have some rough times.
