I am new to this forum and this is my first post.
I have a long history of generalised anxiety and have been on and off of Fluoxetine for about 15 years. In October I suddenly started to become very anxious again and started back on a daily dose of 20mg. After 6 weeks and no improvement my doctor increased the dose to 40mg every other day. I have been taking this increased dose for 5 weeks. Currently I seem to be able to go about 10 days feeling ok, but then have 2-3 days feeling really anxious again, to the point of having to take Diazepam to relax and Zopiclone to sleep. I have also seen a counsellor who has instructed me in EFT (tapping therapy) and has suggested listening to Holosync audio. I've had a couple of stressful issues recently with surgery back in September, starting a new job in the New Year and more surgery scheduled for March. Researching about anxiety on the Internet suggests accepting your feelings and not fighting them is of benefit, but I find this extremely difficult to do. Some words of reassurance would be good or should I see if my doctor will up the daily dose to 40mg.
