So some back story is I've been dealing with depression and anxiety for years and was stable at one point but for the past two years it's been extremely terrible.
I was on mirtazapine 15mg, rexulti 1mg, and venlafaxine 37.5mg for a about 7 months. I was barely getting through even on all of those medications so my psychiatrist raised rexulti to 2 mg for about a month and I didn't like the way it made me feel. My psych then lowered rexulti back to 1mg and then took me off it completely. She switched me to wellbutrin 100mg which increased suicidal thoughts for me. I felt absolutely terrible. I was on it as well as the others for about two weeks. She took me off of wellbutrin and increased mirtazapine to 30 mg. The next day I took magnesium glycinate 100 mg hoping to get some relief from how bad I was feeling. So at this point I was on 30mg mirtazapine, 37.5mg venlafaxine and had just gotten off of wellbutrin a day or two prior to taking the magnesium glycinate. I'd also been taking fish oil on and off for months.
Shortly after taking magnesium glycinate, I noticed my breathing slowed a bit but wasn't too bad. The next day my chest was feeling tight like it was hard to take a deep breath and I had a weird pain in my throat with a lot of anxiety and some lightheadedness. This continued for a few days to a week. I got sick a couple days after with a cold or possibly my sinuses, (I'm not really sure what it was). It was hard to pin point what was causing what. I got off wellbutrin, then took mag glycinate, then started feeling all these different symptoms a day after then got sick a couple days after that. It was hard to tell if it was the mag glycinate or not especially since I didn't fully feel symptoms until the next day and I only took 1 dose of 100mg. The pains in my chest/throat eventually went away. I still feel lightheaded and have this weird cloudy feeling in my head, I'm very sensitive to noise, have headaches, and everything just feels like a dream. It's really scary. About a week after seeing some improvement in ny symptoms, my psychiatrist wanted me to add folate to my combo of mirt 30mg and venlafaxine 37.5mg, which I did. The cloudiness in my head increased so a week after I stopped the folate. That was a week ago. Since I took the mag glycinate and later the folate, I've been feeling lightheaded, extreme brain fog (which I had to a lesser extent before), bad memory (which was already failing before), headaches, noises seem so loud, bad anxiety, some restlessness, and it seems like I'm in a dream.
I'm worried that I messed up my brain from taking the magnesium glycinate with the mirt and venlafaxine combo and then worsened it by taking folate later. Will these symptoms ever go away? I'm absolutely terrified and even more so depressed over this. I wish I never took the magnesium glycinate
