Advice needed

Posted , 6 users are following.

Went to my Dr today and all my blood work is normal and stool sample came back normal, he is sure my diarrhea is a result of my anxiety.  He told me i need to get to the root of my anxiety, im struggling with that as i never notice anxiety until i got sick in march with a cold that drug out then i ened up with allergies right after.  He prescribed Escitalopram and Ativan to help me.  I started therapy on Monday.  I took an Ativan about 4 hours ago as i was quite anxious after my appointment, now i feel dead tired.  Just wondering what others experiece as side effects from medication, and also any advice on how to get to the root of my anxiety would be greatly appreciated.
