I got nothing. I requested a med change. Get off of one so I do not need to take another to sleep. This saves me about $200 a month. The constant anxiety came back like a bear. I didn't even see it coming. So I called in and he up my Buspar. The anxiety stopped, but the depression kicked in big time.
I am sorry I have nothing to offer you. It is just a big merry go round to me. I tried to get off all meds, and that is when the panic attacks got really bad.
So I've tried all kinds of combinations of drugs because I too am drug sensitive. I do not like feeling dizzy. I've tried no drugs. I have done talk therapy. I try to help others as much as I can, because it keeps me off my mind.
With the help of medication I can be anxiety and panic attack free. However, I am not me. And I know you all know what I am talking about.

I don't know about the time situation....sorry...I, like you, love getting points!!!
For me relaxing means finding something to do that is really involved. Taking a bath or going for a walk just get me thinking even they don't work for me! Are there any volunteer opportunities for you? Reading with kids in a school or mentoring someone?
Hope your anxiety fades some SOON!

I am so sorry that you are going through all of this right now. I can certainly understand why you are depressed. I am glad that you are doing deep breathing exercises because I find them beneficial when I am suffering from extreme anxiety. I wish I had a lot of good advice for you but I really don't. Just know that we are sending positive thoughts to you. Please let us know how you are doing. emoticon

I find it very confusing when talking to various drs. and, believe me, this week I have seen many. My dr. wants to up my seroquel to 300 mgs. a nite now--he took it slow as I have such a bad reaction to different lines of medications. I am very depressed about this and I am having such tremendous anxiety attacks this week as I have had so many dr. appts. in a day--various reasons and not all are concerning therapy, but leaving the house for this reason I just started throwing up when I got to his office.
At least I made it to the restroom before I went into his office. I am just an emotional mess over this anxiety stuff and not deal, at all, well with it. I would so appreciate any advice that any of you can give me that really has been a big help. I have done breathing exercises and I have been exercising this week but still fell a failure with it as I haven't done all I wanted and especially the fact that I stuff it in just before my time is up to log it in on this site. I think I missed getting points for logging them in for Thursday as it was 11 p.m. here but because we are central time, I guess the time for logging everything in is based on eastern time. Is this correct????? Thank you to all who will take the time and respond to this message. You mean a lot to me.

Happy Sparkling,
