I have been diagnosed with GAD and due to such high anxiety levels many things have came with that... Depersonalization, de realisation, feeling detached, depression, panic, ocd a lot of things going on.
I am no longer on any medication, I was on citalopram for 3 months which didn't give me the benefits I was looking for it made my anxiety worse. Since coming off the tablets my disorder obviously has got stronger and the doctor suggested another to try 'venlafaxine'. I am so unsure whether to start them, I have started therapy with the NHS, relaxation classes, meditation classes, holistic therapy but it still seems like I need extra help. I just don't know, the worry of the tablets and that it can make me worse etc is killing me. I'm living inside my head at the moment and it's so scary the thought of going back on the tablets but I have a disorder and it's so hard to handle.
can anyone help discuss this with me? It's like my anxiety is winning by not even trying and allowing me to think about it so much that I refuse to try them. Just so scared
