I upped my dose of fluoxitine to 40mg 3 days ago, I don't usually suffer with anxiety or panic attacks during the day, it only seems to come out Kate afternoon or night time, but this morning I've had 3 panic attacks already! And they don't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon.
This obviously has me in a low mood, motivation has gone out of the window. Just feel exhausted even though I've slept 8+ hours.
Doc has given me Promethazine 25mg which is an antihistamine but has drowsy side effects to help me sleep at night but this doesn't stop my anxiety or panic attacks and I'm having them almost every night now aswel even though I only used to have them every other night before or when I was in a good place I didn't have them at all.
I've had my first session of CBT which set me back quite a bit having to face my phobia of death, had to go to the mental health prevention team at my local A&E because I honestly didn't know what I would do to myself.
I can't escape my fear but on the other hand I can't face it either even though it is inevitable.
I just do not know what else I can do! It's frustrating and terrifying at the same time. I want to come to terms with it but my brain refuses to.
