Ive been off the mirts for 10 days, I was on a very low dose of 3.75mgs for 10 weeks and 1.88mgs for 2 weeks before stopping. I was this med for severe anxiety. I've had some withdraw symptoms I think, started about 4 days after last pill, headache, then nausea, bad anxiety espicially in the morning but can feel it all day, muscle aches very bad in my legs, arms and shoulders. I feel like my shoulders and legs are tight all the time and anxious, is this all normal after stopping this med? Also some dizziness and tiredness, less of an appetite. Is all this normal? I called my psych doc yesterday because I was so sick this weekend and anxiety was so high on monday. When I saw him last week he said lets stay off the meds and try therapy, then yesterday he said go back to the 1.88mg dose and he will call me thursday. I originally stopped this med because I was swelling and having legs aching all the time. Now he wants me to go back on it, after telling me 2 days before to stay off of it and do therapy. I honestly don't know what to do, the anxiety and stress in my system is worrying me, I have health anxiety so this is making me think its causing heart issues. I'm 55yrs old so I worry about how all this long term stuff is now effecting me. Is it normal for the muscles to feel tight for days and the anxiety to be there all the time? Have any of you stopped this med only to be told to go back on? Did it help when you went back on? Did you get off of it a later date and be ok? I'm a wreck as you can see and need some help. Thanks
