Peri anxiety update

Posted , 8 users are following.

Hi ladies just thought I would let u all know I've now been on antidepressants for my awful anxiety and depression for 4 and a half weeks, and I'm starting to feel like my old self, it's still early days but for the past week I've noticed it's dulled somewhat considerably, I'm also taking menopace viobotics for the other symptoms, but the anxiety for me was the worse, like so many of us on here I became a different person very suddenly, almost a prisoner in my own home, but now my thoughts and mood are changing for the better, to all the ladies who are thinking of or scared to try antidepressant please give it a go, after the initial side affects and a few weeks if patience, for me it's paying of x

    I am so glad you are starting to feel better!  That is great news and gives hope to us anxiety ridden women!  I started on Prozac around 3 and 1/2 weeks ago and I have noticed that it has made difference as well!  I was reluctant to start one, because in the past I had trouble getting through the first week.  This time I hung with it and am very glad I did.  I am not quite back to my old self, but I am no longer a prisoner in my own home or suffering panic attacks.  

    Like you, the anxiety attacks were the worst part for me.  Absolutely horrific.  My doctor told me that it takes around six weeks to feel the full effects, but it is definitely a step in the right directionsmile
