Looking for some advice whether to take up 5-htp with L-tyrosine or go back on citalopram again.
I was on cit for 6 months after severe panic attacks & anxiety due my son in hospital, could not sleep, white flashes zaps in the brain, brain not shutting down when trying to sleep etc
Came off gradually until stopping May 1st. Apart from usual terrible side effects when first on them & then coming off them things have been fine until this wkend when I crashed & burned.
Basically my wife took the kids on a day trip on a boat for the day & I panicked worrying that something terrible would happen if I wasn't there.
Have all symptoms back again, stomach butterfly's feels like going to be sick all the time, can't sleep & shut the brain down. Booked a family holiday end of October & the thought of a long flight fills me with dread whether I can cope with the flight & the holiday so far from home when only few weeks back I was super excited!
Anyway wondering to give 5-htp & tyrosine a go, what sort of dose(low then build it up) and whether you can take them with zolpidam sleeping tablet and diazepam calming tablet - and whether it will sort me out before end October - or just go back on cit
Hope you can help
