I've had GAD since last October and am getting better, started Mirtazapine early December and this is now kicking in. So the depression side of the illness is going but the worrying is coming back with a venegence. I am also on Beta blockers to help with the panics. The worst place for me to go is the Drs surgery and even just picking up tablets brings on a major panic now. I thought I was going to have to take my little one to the Drs today but thankfully hes better (no sleep overnight worrying about it though!) The real trouble is the fact that GP wont put the anti depressants on repeat and so I have to keep going back for a review before I can get any more tablets. I am spending a huge amount of time worrying about the next appointment (and theres always another appointment to worry about!) I am planning to just phone next time I need tablets so that should be slightly easier but how can you encourage the gp to put the meds on repeat? It doesnt help me to talk about my problems and just makes me worse, intially self referred onto a phone CBT course after seeing a poster in the Drs and the CBT just made me 100 x worse. I was just having problems sleeping and worrying about everything before, no panic attacks and no depression before I started. I am on a waiting list for face to face CBT but goodness knows why as theres no way I could cope with the anxiety of another run of appointments with someone else, and also fear the CBT just reverting me back to where I was around Christmas and I really dont want to go back there. I just feel like I am wasting everyones time and just want to get off the ride but once the ball starts rolling it seems impossible to stop it. Any advice anyone?
