I'm hoping that someone could hep reasure me, I'm pretty scared. I have suffered anxiety attacks in the past but I managed years without them. Due to stress at college my anxiety was starting to creep up although I was managing. The docs gave me 50mg of setraline to try, I was on them for 3 days and they made me so ill, nausea, dihorea, buzzing in my ears, shaking and constant anxiety attacks. The doctor said stopping them after 3 days wouldn't cause any problems however I just kept feeling worse to the point I pleaded to be put in hospital. The doctor then prescribed me 15mg of mirtazapine and I was desperate to feel better. I was on them for 3 days and although I was able to get out my bed I felt extremely drugged and still dealing with panic attacks, I stopped them after 3 nights as i dint want to be stuck on drugs, and was told there would be no withdrawals due to how long I was on them. I felt much better before any of these meds. This is my second day off them, the 1st day I still had anxiety but started to feel better throughout the day but I'm now on day 2 being off them and I feel worse. I feel extremely spaced out, i'm having to constantly battle with panic attacks (I am keeping them at bay) however it's a constant battle. I have had no appetite since this started and have lost over half a stone. I feel totally exhausted even though I am getting sleep. All this seems to be worse in the mornings and throughout the day and easing very slightly at night. Does anyone know if this is normal and how long it will last?
