Hey everyone. Not sure where to start. A year ago I had a near death experience. around October, I experienced some mild anxiety (was told it was bertigo) and dismissed it. As the months went on, I noticed my anxiety getting a tiny bit worse. For example in February I went out for drinks for my birthday and after having one was feeling very anxious (I never had this issue). In March, my grandma passed away. About two weeks later, I started getting panic attacks every few days to the point where I had to leave my job and can barely leave my house. My GP gave me Xanax since I was in his office during a random panic attack (was there for a sore throat and had a panic attack in the waiting room).
Finally got in with a psychiatrist 2 weeks ago and was given Prozac 10mg along with continuing the Xanax. The Prozac made me even worse. My anxiety was so bad I did not leave my home for 2 weeks and missed important family events. I am now starting Zoloft and very on edge. I'm afraid of having the horrible experience I had on the Prozac which was a major increase in anxiety, throwing up, no appetite, frequent panic attacks, and not sleeping.
Just wondering if anyone can share their experiences with anxiety medication and if it helped or not. I don't want to keep trying out meds if nothing will help and only seems to make me feel worse.
