I would really love some advice on this. I feel like I've reached out to every possible outlet and keep feeling like I'm left out on a limb. I even texted a crisis line and they haven't gotten back.
I've been dealing with anxiety/OCD/depression since childhood. Recently it's spiraled out of control. I once stayed up nearly two days straight in October because I was anxious and having heart palpitations when I would try to sleep. This frightened me and I sought out medical help. My doc prescribed setraline at 25mg with .25 xanax as needed. Got bumped to 50mg. Things were rough then got better. Then as I started to self wean off the xanax I spiraled back down. Monday I was bumped to 100mg but put back down to 75mg to see if that helps.
Now I have difficulty eating because I am afraid I will continue to vomit after eating and I still can't seem to.get to sleep. I feel like my heart races then stops.
I'm jus wondering if this is me. Is it the setraline. Will I ever see relief? I can't keep going like this. I'm thinking of committing myself but I've heard bad things about that too. Please help.
