Well, I am ready to go back on meds for my anxiety...I had a really bad anxiety attack on the way to work yesterday, and it affected me all day. I hate the thought of being on meds, I really, really do not want to be on anything....but I don't know what else to do anymore. I have been off meds for about 9mos and feel like I'm losing it all of the time practically! Just typing this makes me want to cry. I recently started Topamax, for migraines and it is also supposed to be a mood stabilizer, so I did not want to add to the mix. I am stopping the topamax d/t the potential memory loss, etc. As a NICU nurse I cannot have that happenning. No way. It terrifies me to think of spacing out while at work and "missing" something on my pt or not doing something correctly....I even felt "spacey" yesterday and I don't know if it was the topamax or the panic attack. I have a constant level of anxiety, so who knows anymore.
Has anyone been on Cymbalta for anxiety? Success? Problems? Weight gain? Thoughts?
And...any support is welcomed...I do not have anyone to talk to, I am trying to find a new therapist, just going to therapy terrifies me.
Thanks everyone, hope to hear from you soon.
