Well it's been over a week since I drank and my anxiety is still through the roof , mornings mainly but it's always there , I'm still taking the citalopram and mirtazipine but I'm waking up with anxiety and it lingers then all day , yes I drank excessively for months until a week ago while on my meds , does this ever ease ? This week has been torture ! and the brain fog is baaaaad

    It's so hard to get through the anxiety when you have m.s so can't work and get bored and fed up , I have been on citalopram and mirtazipine for months and although I wasn't 100% I was slightly better then started drinking everyday 10 bottles of beer , mainly in day times , anxiety is really bad and I'm so hopeful that it will settle , can't believe that a few months of daily drinking can set you back so much . And that it can really upset your mental balance , and bring all that negativity back , really foggy headed , concentration is shot and super super anxious , sorry to go on.......

    Good morning Mr. Flinn. Sorry for your discomfort. Maybe you can approach your alcohol problem. Have you thought about trying AA meetings to help? I am not judging you but mixing alcohol and anti depressants can be like a time bomb. You can't cover the alcohol problem up with anti depressants, and u can't cover the depressants with alcohol. Hope you get better. Thank you for being brave and sharing.
