Well I saw my doctor today, though how I made it there was anyones guess. This crash was feeding me non stop really bad thoughts..... I was even sitting in the doctors waiting room writing goodbye notes to my kids. I was in tears non-stop as this is NOT what I want or want to think about.

My pdoc basically said no one can help me but myself, I said to her I'm taking all the meds you prescribe I follow my CBT but each month it gets to this point where nothing can control my thoughts and anxiety.

It seems my hormones may be making a big contributation to this so she's prescribed me Largactil 10mg could change either way depending on my needs for the week to 2 weeks my hormones really play up.

She said it should totally take away the thoughts which are the main problem at that peak period each month.

Does anyone else take Largactil and how do you find it?

Edit to say I also had a stomach virus on Tuesday and I was also told when we have a virus it somehow draws on all our inner bits so that's why we often get a large anxiety attack after a virus.

Aussie, I was on largactil for a short time.  It didn't work for me because I wasn't having "thoughts" just anxiety.  I really hope it works for you....you are really doing it rough right now (((((hugs))))).  Just a quick word of warning.  Stay out of the sun.  Side effects of this med can result in you turning blue.  Long time (many, many years please do not freak!!) can give you facial tic's.  If you need to talk email me.  We're on the same time (EST).  Stay strong ((hugs))

sounds like your psych is running out of ideas, unwanted thoughts are usually from OCD, self help books such as brainlock if available have good advice

largactil is a very old fashioned med, find out the usual dose range, I suppose a very small dose wouldnt do harm

it helps to watch TV soaps or Opah to crowd out bad thoughts tongue

Hi Guys,

Everyone keeps raving on about how my pdoc is one of the best, I just think what she's doing for me isn't working.

My thoughts keep turning to the things we don't talk about and I've had doctors tell me this is normal for an anxiety sufferer. sad I don't think it's normal for anyone to feel that way and that's what's scaring me so much. I'm home alone most of the time with 3 kids I don't want those thoughts.

I'm getting hubby to take me to hospital shortly, I just need to eat something to take my meds with and arrange a babysitter. Enough is enough. I don't know what the public health system will be like to help all I know is 10 months ago I was on 1 tablet feeling great and had been for a couple of years. 10 months later I'm now on 4 different tablets a day that aren't working, I'm in tears all the time or shaking and sick with anxiety.

I just want to return to 'my normal' this isn't it.

If you don't hear from me for a couple of days I guess that'll mean they've finally decided to do something to help and have admitted me.

Thanks for everyones thoughts, please pray that they'll work out what is going on with me and help fix it.
