I made another post a little over a week ago with withdrawal symptoms from Celexa which I was on for about 3 weeks and was not informed with what could happen if I quit cold turkey and I did for 3 days. (I’m only 16 and have never been on a consistent medication and believe my body is quite sensitive towards medication) On day 3, I had a massive migraine, diarrhea, and couldn’t stop crying. I took one the next day and was fine till later that day and had a panic attack and I haven’t been able to shake off the chest pain and anxiety since. (It’s been a little over a week now and it’s constant, 24/7) after that I was on and off it for 2 or 3 days and then went to the ER, they said I’m fine and need to check with my doctor so I did the next day and she put me on Prozac. I feel like I’ve been having side effects with Prozac as well which include hyperactivity, scary thoughts of dying or going to sleep and not waking up, chest pain (still), back pain, aching, so so so many different feelings. I feel so energetic (not the good type of energy) and yet so tired and exhausted.
I was just diagnosed with PTSD. Unfortunately, my dad had a very unexpected heart attack and I was the one to call the ambulance and do CPR on my father. (Very close father daughter relationship) Sadly, he did not make it. This was just over 5 months ago. I seemed to be handling it well till now. I’m so worried about my health and I have images in my head of me falling over and not breathing or falling asleep and dying in my sleep.
I’m seeing a psychiatrist eventually because the only thing my doctor can tell me is to “keep taking the Prozac” regardless of these terrible side effects.
Someone please assure me that I’m not dying and that my symptoms are normal and will go away with time. I’m mentally and physically exhausted and I overthink all my symptoms...
