Helps anxiety and depression or something else

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi all,

I'm currently having the toughest time of my life! I have been diagnosed with depression and anxiety, I have had anxiety for years but been able to contain it but since the depression both have been playing havoc both in my mind and my body...

My issue is I have been seeing a therapist for 4 weeks and been on mirtazapine 15mg for 12 weeks now my depression has reduced but my anxiety is sky high it is now making me feel physically sick. I wake every morning shakey, weak, hot and racing thoughts this continues and I have crazy thoughts all day - I go swimming and read self help books but nothing seems to be helping me!

When I go out I feel so unsteady on my feet, light headed , faint , freezing cold and cannot get my words out! The anxiety wasn't that bad at the start but it seems to be getting worse the further along I am treated?

Please help! I keep thinking in my head should I go hospital or what should I do? I am on sick leave currently and I am doing everything I can to sort myself out - I gave up alcohol, don't do drugs, don't drink caffeine and it's like the harder I try the worse I get!

    Try therapy instead of meds, or alongside them if you want to take them. Meds alone isnt often suitable treatment for anxiety
