strange side effects with anxiety

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi i wonder if anyone can help me? I have had anxiety for about 15months now. I started when i was driving i had a full on adrenaline rush from my knees to my chest. I then had another straight after then i was weak. Also it felt like a out of body experience and thought that this was it i was going to die right there. I known it sounds dramatic but that is how i felt at the time. Now i have the same feeling all the time which is not good. I can't seem to get pass this yet and wonder if anyone can help me please. Thankyou for reading 😞

    Sounds to me like you're taking an anti-anxiety medication or an anti-depressant. Am I right by any chance?

    Yes i was taking the fluxatine for depression which started after my sister died,then i had a plural fusion and was totally convinced the doctor was wrong,it all started like that and now it just seems to get worse. I try and be positive but find it hard, i still have the pain from the plural fusion after two years so on one hand I think if it was anything bad it would have got worse but then the anxiety takes over and i think allsorts. The doctor said it was health anxiety i have but just cannot get passed this stage. Thankyou for your feedback 😊

    I am so sorry to hear about you're sister. But honey, you're Prozac is creating all of you're symptoms and problems. You just made a partial list of most of Prozac's side effects that are listed. Anxiety, panic, depression. ect. Please look up Prozac on the Internet and read the Warnings, Uses, and Side effects and you're going to see yourself on every page. I didn't even know they used Prozac anymore. Every anti-depressant has side effects. And withdrawal symptoms as well. Does this all sound too crazy to you?
