Im hoping you could help me?
Little bit about my story.
3 months ago was a fit healthy man (32) loving work and enjoying life. I have recently had a little baby girl (6 months old).
3 months ago I started to get panic attacks and racing thoughts when I tried to sleep.
I went to my GP he prescribed me sertraline, worst mistake of my life(lasted 8 days on them).
I then went back and he prescribed me Mirtazapine.
I took 7.5mg for 3 days then moved up to 15mg for roughly 2 weeks. On the second week I thought these ain't doing much for my anxiety and I stopped taking them. Big mistake!!! I've never been depressed, within a few days I was in a black hole, crying etc.
I made the choice to reinstate the 15mg dose for 2 weeks, went back to the GP because I still thought they wasn't doing much for my anxiety. He increased my dose to 30mg. I've now been at this dose for a week and I still don't feel right, I know people say stick at it for 4-6 weeks but I'm starting to believe the mirt is causing OCD type intrusive thoughts which I've never had before in my life.
I'm seeing a privets counsellor which i think is helping more than the tablets.
Basically I want of these tablets! Even though I've only been on them a short time i believe they are causing more problems than they are fixing.
Making me lazy, not wanting to leave the house, not wanting to drive, OCD intrusive thoughts, and can't work.
I just want to get it out my system, I've forgot what the real me felt like, I feel kinda numb?
I'm writing to you because you seem to have the knowledge and information to help me get of these.
How do I go about it?
Thank you in advance.
