I have been suffering anxiety (which led to me feeling quite depressed) for a couple of months and after seeing the GP she put me on setraline. It didn't go well. I started feeling suicidal after a week and had to come off them- it was awful. The doctor put me on 10mg of fluoxetine (20mg every other day) and aside from a bit of insomnia and a couple of days of feeling crappy I felt better. Fast forward a month and she's put it up to 20mg daily.. A week in and I feel like s**t. It's horrible. Having horrible health anxiety about my heart (convinced I'm going to have a heart attack) and also general anxiety about everything! I'm so exhausted. It's really getting me down. The thing that worries me is my anxiety comes in episodes anyway- so is this just the illness or is it adjusting to the fluoxetine? So fed up of the physical feeling of heaviness in my chest. It's 3.32am and I'm still awake knowing I have work tomorrow. It sucks. Any advive/reassurance greatly appreciated. Amy x
