I was given a drug Sertraline to take by my GP on the 15th March 2016 to help treat mild anxiety I was encountering due to work stress. After taking this drug I had a bad reaction which caused me to have ongoing migraines, numbness in right arm and pains inside my head for about 3 weeks. These physical symptoms have now eventually faded however I am now encountering more extreme levels of Anxiety with weakness and tension in parts of my body since taking the initial Sertraline dose.
My GP then prescribed me a further drug Mirtazapine which I have now been taking for 11 days. This drug does not appear to be working and I am finding my anxiety seems to be more intense and I am now encountering intrusive thoughts. I am concerned that the intial Sertraline drug did some damage inside my head as I am also encountering a few issues doing some day to day activities which I used to be able to action with no problems. I have tried to raise these points with my GP but feel like my concerns are not being fully acknowledged. I do not know where to turn to next as no one seems to be listening to me, my only potential hope now is a private appointment I have managed to sort out through work to get a further opinion.
I feel very let down by the NHS and with my overall support provided so far. What would you do in this situation?
