Hello, my name is Marcel and i am 18 years old. I am full time student and i am a amateur bodybuilder that loves fitness. iv'e had minor anxiety for a while but just this past summer my anxiety has been sky rocketing, mostly due to very high amounts of stress and over thinking. During this summer its been very hard to eat the daily amount of food i need to eat. As a amateur bodybuilder i need to eat a surplus of calories to build lean muscle, this task has been easy for years up until this past summer. I'm assuming the nausea is from the horrible anxiety. This past week i was prescribed Lexapro from my doctor, i took it for 4 days and started to feel very sucidal and very anxious, i stopped taking it yesterday and it seems like these past days have been even worse in terms of me feeling nausea. And when i feel nausea i get more anxiety, which feeds the vicious cycle. I believe if i stop feeling nausea all day and start getting my appetite back that i will feel much better and my anxiety will decrease. Im pretty certain on stopping my Lexapro medication, and ive been doing research into anti-depressants that make you less nausea and increase your appetite. The one that sticks out the most is Remeron, if anyone has experience with this, or if anyone has any way to help my nagging nausea feeling and loss of appetite please help me.
Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you.
