I'm 23 and had anxiety for as long as i remember. been taking setraline and SR propranolol for a few years which takes the edge off.
Since November I've noticed things getting worse and worse. I went and discussed things Late November and They just upped me to 100mg setraline a day.
I'm at the point now where I can barely go into uni because I will just have to throw up walking out the door or at any point while I'm out. I can't face coursework, I am constantly having a panic attacks and feel on the verge of one nearly all the time and I'm not sleeping.
I want to the doctor today. Told him all this and he said that I had to wait a month for uni to be quieter then they are going to wein me off setraline and try something else which will take many weeks.
I do have counceiling which helps but I can't help but feel that waiting until easter then going for a month long medication change which will be hell for something that only might work seems really slow because I really can't take much more now.
Does anyone have any suggestions on what I should do? I feel helpless and like an idiot for going into the doctor today.
