Haven't been on for a while - really need help , regarding Meds/ depression / anxiety

Posted , 6 users are following.

basically after lots of diff meds im now on Trazodone 300mg , fluepentixol 0.5 X4 per day, and as of last week propranalol 80mg X1 day to help with the physical effects of the anxiety.

My concern is , since the propranalol my mood has plumeted and ive still felt anxious but more in my mind than anything else . 

today i had to leave work as i felt the pits , it was just too much effort to even try and speak to people , so i just come home and slept , and have pretty much felt like it since ... i just feel i cant snap out of it . 

i have made an apt to see gp tomorrow . 

my question is - is it normal for the depression to worsen on propranalol or is it sheer coincedence ?

    Sorry, can't help at all with your question, Sarah, but wanted to say how sorry I am that you are still struggling.  I am sure your GP will have good advice for you.

    Take care,

    Well I do know that your symptoms can worsen temporarily on a new med until it gets properly into your system.  Maybe this is what's happening here?  x

    Hi Sarah i was on 80mg of propranalol because of thyroid problem, and i couldn't get out of bed i felt so depressed! In fact when back to doc's said i felt really depressed, and he said "oh propranalol can do that!!!" If he'd looked at my notes he would of seen that i suffer with depression and am on an antidepressant! Anyway he advised i half them to 40mg and i feel much better! Hope this helps?

      Sarah, so sorry you are suffering too..My depression and anxiety has reared its ugly head again, and it began about two weeks ago.  It is Fall in the USA, and I suffer from SAD...the seasonal disorder...I don't know what your weather is in the UK, but you might check on that.  I just ordered a light therepy from Ebay..will let you all know if it helps..Going without sunshine is horrible for me, even for a few days.   Hope you feel better soon, sweetie...HUGS.  xxx
