Persistent malaise (ill) feeling

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi together.

I am 28, male from Czech Republic. Hope my english is sufficient to describe my problems. Since November 2015 I have been suffering with anxiety (according to my Dr.) Since December been on Cipralex, from February 2016 Mirtazapine was added due to insomnia. Almost all of my problems disappeared. Anyway still i suffer from DAILY malaise feeling (feeling like ill, fatigued, nauzea, ...). Is it normal? Does anybody else suffer from the same or similar? Thank you for any comment.

    This could be a side effect to the medication

    Hi yes those are typical symptoms of anxiety. I have been suffering all my life with anxiety and unfortunately there are physical symptoms as being anxious creates a lot of stomach and gastrointestinal issues...😔. These are my daily battles as well.

    Thank you for your comments. Anyway I am really wondering whether there is anybody suffering from the same (or similar) while on antidepressants. I feel really bad ... like coming down with a flu or cold. Every day ...

    If it is an anxiety symptom or medication side effect, when will this disappear? It is daily struggle to live with that.

      This is actually what I understand. Decreasing the dosage is very similar to going off med. That brings problems like malaise, flu-like, nausea, etc. But my situation is different - I am on Cipralex 10mg from the very beginning. Well I changed from Citalec to Trazodone and then finally to Cipralex. My mental condition is much better than it was. Anyway I have those symptoms and I don't know why :-(

    I hope you get to the root of your problem and feel better really soon. In the last year my meds were changed 3X cause they just didn't work or side effects were horrendous...
