i have spent the last few years on this rollercoaster of ups and downs, i take my anxiety meds, feel good, start to feel numb and then go off them. i feel great when i first stop them, its weird , almost feels euphoric.... and then little by little the anxiety creeps back in. I keep hearing/reading people say that they are just able to push the bad thoughts out of their head and prevent panic attacks that way, but what do you do when your anxiety creates very real symptoms? i have really extreme health anxiety and without fail, everytime i withdraw from my anxiety meds, i develop some new symptom and head off to the dr for a test, x ray, or scan.
sorry to hog up your thread here, i guess my point is that for me i have not been able to successfully stop my meds. and my anxiety seems to intensify during the latter stage of each withdrawal period.
i really do wish you luck with however you do decide to get through your anxiety.
