Welcome to HealingWell. I have a couple of questions for clarification. What did the physicians tell you they felt was the problem and what were the medications.
Generalized anxiety disorder occurs when you feel worried and stressed about many everyday events and activities. Often the things you are worried about are small or not important. This type of worry disrupts your life most days. Everyone gets worried or anxious sometimes, but people with generalized anxiety disorder experience more than normal everyday worries.
Many people who have generalized anxiety disorder have physical symptoms, such as headaches or being tired all the time.

I have experienced overwhelming health worries for the last 1.5 years. I also work in a very stressful position, but I have no anxiety worries when I am working. It is in the down time where I may be just sitting around where I get my anxiety.
I also agree with Kitt that more information is needed. There are several anti-anxiety meds that take several weeks to start working and make you drowsy. When you stop taking them it may take several weeks for the drugs to get out of your system at which time even though you have stopped taking them you are drowsy. However, it is very important that you stop taking the meds under supervision of your doctor. It would be beneficial to know the type of meds you were on.
I also suspect that you do have some anxiety in your calm time, not working at the moment but have a job coming up.
My best suggestion is to get up and move. Get out of the house, go for walks, go visit your friends but just stay away from some where to lay down and give in to the drowsiness. Don't drive a car if you drowwsy.
Be where the action is, a zoo, a ballgame. Just don't give in to the feeling your want to go back to bed.
Take care and I hope this passes for you.
