What medication do you guys take to control anxiety.

Posted , 4 users are following.

I want a list of what helps, I am seriously considering a new medication to ask my GP about and I refuse to take two types of medication at any given time because of serotonin syndrome.

I currently take mirtzapine 45 MG although that isn't actually a medication to deal with anxiety that my psychiatrist said.

He did recommend me to take lexapro although he did say to take it ontop of my mirtzapine (but between hours) and taking the two can cause serotonin syndrome so i took myself off of the lexapro with my GP monitoring this about 6 weeks ago. 

I have considered going off the mirtzapine to try the lexapro (after a month or so being off one) but I am undecided yet because I do know different medications help different people and I want to see what is currently working for many.

If you experience the following symptoms, or have followed the same symptoms please do let me know if a medication has helped with this.

Numbness over body (imagine being light-headed but persistently for 6 weeks across your entire body), Body aches (anywhere in the body), brain feels cloudy/foggy, sensitive to touch, feeling of being slightly detached from your body. 

That's about all that I would personally say are the big factors of what I am dealing with lately. I have considered suicide but honestly I couldn't bring myself to ever self-harm let alone death so that's not going to happen.

I've never experienced this side to anxiety and it's honestly quite irritating and annoying at this point rather than me fearing it which I was. 

I just don't know how to shake this off no matter what I do, even when I wake up first thing of the morning I just feel weak, fatigue, and this feeling of numbness sort of across my body is driving me cuckoo lol
