I have posted a similar item a little while ago but am inviting more feedback as I am so worried and anxious. I have yet to start a new anti-depressant escitalopram. I am very sensitive to medication and had some very bad side effects with a low dose or another ssir. What I want to know is how can i manage start up issue, particularly an increase in anxeity and depresion. I feel I am already at my limit of what I can cope with so anymore and I don.t know how I would function. I know there is the benzodiazapine route but is that the only thing? I am really scaring myself silly but know that my depression / anxiety is very bad.
Another thing that I worry about is the fact that there is quite a low success rate with the first anti depressant tried. Again I don't know how i would cope with tapering and all that involves as I have no resiliance at the moment and feel terrible anyway. By the way I live alone.
