Ok, so I'm 28. I moved to the city in 2010 from a small town. I started seeing someone to manage my medicines that I was on. I think which was Zoloft and a few others. Around 2014 or so I was on 3 to 4 different medicines. I was very active in the gym. I would go to our amusement parks and the beach. Never had a problem. I think around 2016 I was on celexa and effexor XR. I've been on a blood thinner since I was probably around 12 or 13. Fast forward to last September or August. I was on celexa 20 mg and effexor XR. Around the 4th of October I started to feel dizzy at work. I realized I have been missing my celexa. I probably missed 3 or 4 doses. I finally got the medicine back in my system for about a week. On the 5th of October I left work for a leave of absence. I was talking to my primary care doctor and she thought I was on to much. So I started tappeeing off celexa. For the next 4 months I was tampering off, getting on, and trying new medicines. I finally got on a stable regimen and less medicine. Around Feb 20 I was feeling pretty good which is when I returned back to work. I was taking some Ativan for anxiety and to help me sleep, because I was having problems sleeping. I was taking .5 at night. Didn't have any problems. Then it started not to be as effective. Then eventually 1 mg a day. Then .5 in the afternoon and 1mg at night. But I haven't been consistently sticking to that regimen. I've been doing physical therapy for about 2 months now but in the past 2 weeks I stared to feel lose and dizzy. Like when I stand up still or walk and then stop I feel wozzy and things aren't still. When I took down or side to side and focus on something I feel like my head is moving. My mom thinks it's just because i haven't been consistent with my Ativan. I called my psych doctor today and he said to take .25 in the morning and night for 2 weeks and come off. Will this dizziness go away after that or while I'm sticking to that regimen? Oh and my ENT ruled out vertigo.
