I hate feeling this way. I have been this way for about 5 months and this is the hardest thing I ever been through. I think that I can't breathe right but I know that is a lie but all I do dwell on it all the time. I am scared of everything. what should I do? Has anyone ever went through what I am going through? How long and What did you do?
Get off that drug a.s.a.p if it does not work for you tell your doctor what you said here.I would tell him Your friend that he gave you a whitr clonazepam so he might get the strongest 2mg clonazepam(Klonopin).It works great for panic attacks and if the dr says no tell him or her that the1mg worked but not as good as the 2 mg ones.
I just posted my similar reaction to Pristiq a few moments ago. I was simply hyper, unable to focus, I am switching to Lamictal but, I mostly have anxiety and pain issues. I was on Pristiq for one year.
I totally understand how you feel. My feeling is if the co. had made this drug in 25mg. we would have been able to tolerate it better. Felt like 50mg was just too strong for my brain/system.
Stay tuned to my posts and I will report in how I do with my switch. I am worried about it.
Be sure and report this to your dr. and he/she will help you. I would love to hear what he recommends you do. GOOD LUÇK
