Been nearly 5 weeks now since I had a breakdown I'm feeling better got some appitite back eating a lot more! Just still feeling so so weak my legs feel like jelly I just feel like they are gonna give way heavy at the knees it's a strange feeling! I feel so drained?? I had bloods done last weak as I went up the doctors he wanted to review how I was doing on the tablets! I told him I still feel very unwell and weak so he did a full blood count and everything came back normal so I have no idea why I still feel so ill! I was 11.9 2 months ago and now I'm 9.11 so I have dropped weight but I think that's because I haven't eaten tidy in weeks! I'm taking this vitamin medicine off doctor but hasent done anything still feel unwell! Could it be side effect off tablets? I have 2 huge ulcers in my mouth aswell and they are very painful I just feel so rundown xx

    I would say a definite yes these are both sides effects from medication and from your anxiety. It too me 7 weeks tI'll I started to feel myself again and the side effects to subside. Take everyday as it comes and try not to predict when you will feel better it will happen just be patient.

    kirsty, sorry for your troubles, i have just came home from hospital, was in all night,i got terribly dizzy and felt dreadful yesterday morning, i couldnt stick it any longer, the ambulance came and in i went to hospital, my blood pressure was through the roof at 196 over 130, my heart was racing, my mouth bone dry, no moisture in my tounge, i thought i had had it, but docters did all the tests, and they concluded it was that bloody fluoxitine, i was on it for two weeks and felt ok, till yesterday when everything collapsed around me,i have a letter from the hospital doctor to tell my doctor to stop the fluoxitine, i had a terrifiying experiance with fluoxitine and i will never touch that muc again, you should go back to your doctor if you feel unwell, as it may get worse.and yes it could be that bloody fluoxitine, hope you reply and take care, angela

      i am back kirsty, hope you are feeling a bit better, i went to docs, i got mirtazipine 15mg to take at night, i met a friend today in town, she has attacks as well and is on a lot of stuff, she told me to ask doc to give me propenalol, they are beta blockers so when i feel that bad turn coming on u just take 1, he ended up giving me propenalol 40mg and the mirtazipine, i am hoping these work this time, its all trial and error, how are u now?as for me, i just took a nice warm bath and i am ok here with my computer, but i have the propenalol on hand,lol.
