I wanted some advise plssssss.
It's been a week now since the awful experience with starting the mirtzapine, after 2 days I was advised to stop the med as I had a terrible reaction to it, I was put on them as I now realise I was going through fluoxetine WITHDRAWAL! ! .
Today is the first day in 'weeks' that I've felt happy and back to my old self. I've been to the gym, in a social situation and felt quite ok ish which is massive as I couldn't have done this Lasborough week.
As I'm still pretty anxious, my head is worrying about everything and I'm still not sleeping 😕. .I seen my doc for a review of my medication.
She has told me to take the fluoxetine every other day for 2 weeks and then every third day for 2 weeks and then stop (instead of stopping abruptly loke I had) .. Bcus fluoxe has not been working for me, she has started me on 10mg of amitriptyline for my insomnia , anxiety etc. . And also 40mg of propranolol (as and when required )..
I have an appt to see her again in 4 weeks for a review.
I really hope this works! !
Does anyone have any experience of amitriptyline? ??? Or propranalol??
I'm scared / anxious of trying new drugs and scared of possible side affects! Or going through WD again..
