I feel worse at night

Posted , 4 users are following.

Ive been on citalopram and propanalol for two weeks now due to stress and anxiety it seems to calm me down a little somedays but im now getting frightened to go to sleep at night. I play my music to keep me relaxed but im still waking up to my heart racing I hadnt had it for a couple of nights and i thought the tablets were starting to kick in but it hapened again last night does anyone else get this please according to the doctors and an ecg im ok and its anxiety I would have thought the propanalol would have kicked in by now. im meant to be going on holiday next week abroad and the last thing I want to do is ruin the holiday for my family

    I have a lot of anxiety at night, as well. I try to watch movies or shows, look at this forum, but I don't know what to do anymore. I don't have the money for online therapy, my mom won't take me to the nearest therapist to schedule an appointment, and I'm plain miserable. I'm off-balance, depressed, anxious, and really hating my life right now. I used to be so care-free... Yes, I did have depression, but it didn't continue on & on like this, along with anxiety. Having anxiety & depression, is like hell. rolleyes

    Yeh indeed its so horrid when you can't sleep, whether its due to anxiety or something else, its horrid. Hope u manage to sleep better soon.

    Maybe try a bit of lavender oil on a handkerchief or your pillow or olbas oil? Or Kalms tablets or valerian - both natural remedies.

    I find listening to relaxation sounds, music and apps very useful and relaxing. Maybe try using the digipill app, headspace, calm and relaxing music apps if you have a smartphone? ūüėČ If not, then maybe search youtube for meditation, hypnotherapy audio sessions.

    Hope that makes sense, take care. Xx

I also listen to my music at night as when I used to meditate i could take my self off but now Im aware of my own heartbeat which for some reason disturbs me they have all worked in the past but at this moment of time I am really struggling thank you for your help
