I'm having increased difficulty coping with my anxiety. Depression and occasional self harming thoughts are also becoming an issue. I have not had great experiences with medication - lexapro caused swelling and itching in my hands, zoloft caused extreme depression and frequent self harming thoughts, prozac didn't curb anxiety but left me flat of other emotions AND caused a 30 lb weight gain within 3 months (almost 5 yrs later I still haven't been able to drop that weight as much as I have tried).
I recently found out that I have hypothyroidism and am waiting for an appointment with an endocrinologist (previous use of synthroid caused worsened anxiety, daily headaches, weight gain and lactation! ).
I have not found a strain of medical marijuana that properly helps my anxiety... My psych RN also gave me a prescript
ion for a low dose of Buspar. I am at a loss here and feeling desperate for help. Even though I am concerned about
taking a different medication, I am considering trying the Buspar...
Does anyone have any experience with it that they are willing to share with me?
