I have just joined and have started day 1 of fluoxetine.
Like many who suffer from this inflection it is a hidden war that is panic attacks and anxiety. I have been fight this war for 5 years now and have finally given into taking medication. Part of the issue for me is I have a vomiting phobia, so nausea sends me into panic and stops me from taking medication that has vomiting or nausea as a side effect. This makes today a huge day for me, taking this first capsule and not ending up in hospital.
I find that I am able to survive my attacks now with distraction such as knitting or colouring. Before I would end up running out of the house in the middle of the night under the influence of fight or flight. Now I force myself to sit and focus my hands.
I hope this medication works. I want my life back!!
