I am so discouraged and frustrated. My anxiety levels are so high. I have tried Setraline, and felt great for a while, and then suddenly I woke up from a nap with a huge panic attack, and it felt like I had 100 cups of coffee. My pdoc refuses to put me on any kind of antidepressant now. He tried to put me on atypical antipsychotics, but had some really bad side effects on microdoses of the medication. I had the pharmacogenetic tests, and now I know I cannot take any kind of atypical antipsychotic. I am currently on low dose lithium 150mg a day While it takes the edge off, I still have days where my anxiety is bad, and I am starting to limit activities because of it. My gynecologist thinks that hormones will help, so I am on low dose estrogen which helped me sleep better. I am trying therapy, but it has not been very helpful yet. Can anyone else sympathize? I am worried about all the meds that I am on. Oh, and I am taking Klonopin too. I am such a mess. I have been dealing with this for 7 months. Is there any hope for me. I have tried the natural way, and exercise, diet, breathing exercises, yoga....etc, and nothing helps much. Can you all tell me what works for you?
