I have always had a small fear of taking new medicines due to traumatic past experiences but recently I've been struggling with panic/anxiety as well. I need an EGD but I'm terrified. I'm supposed to start nexium but I cannot bring myself to do i . I was on prevacid for just a few days and it made me panic so hard. I thought it was just me but I read others that had the same problem. Here's the catch, I'm just as terrified of feeling normal. Its been so long that I don't even remember. All I know is that if I don't try I'm going to starve to death.
Discuss this with your Dr, who is the one you need to trust. Feeling a bit worse the first 3-5 days is normal and will occur no matter which med of this type you're prescribed. No taking the med at all delays the treatment and indicates there may be a doubt/mistrust factor with the Dr. If the Dr can't reassure you, strangers on the Internet will have much less a chance, contact your Dr so you can start feeling better.
