I've suffered from GAD for many years, had CBT, Mindfulness, EMDR and numerous medications, including Beta Blockers, Anti Depressants , Pregabalin etcetc. but none of them actually works!!! The only thing that takes the edge off and calms me down enough to function "normally" Diazepam, but my Doctor will only prescribe it for very short spells at low doses...so, I get some relief for a few days then it's back to square one- I'm constantly on a knife edge, liable to have a panic attack over the slightest thing. I also don't sleep well- I keep waking at 2a.m. with pounding heart etc. and can't get back to sleep, so I feel almost permanently exhausted. The amitryptilene my GP prescribed don't help, and zopiclone makes me feel like a zombie, so I really don't want to have to use it. However, I'm beginning to feel desperate-will this horrible feeling of impending doom never ease off? Can anyone suggest ANYTHING that might help, please?
