I was once where you are now. I was terrified to take any drug, for fear it would hurt me, make me sick, & worse. I was given Xanax for severe PTSD & panic attacks & guess what?? My friend, it worked. I got therapy as well, & leared to identify the triggers that were causing the panic attacks. I worked with my doctor, & along with the medication, I can honestly say, I am 100% better. Look up the meds you will be taking, right here on Drugs.com & be familiar with any side effects. Please contact your doctor if you have any re-actions that make you uncomfortable or worse. That's what the doctor is there for. It may take a little time for the medication to begin working, but do give it time & see how you feel. Please don't drive if you feel sleepy, groggy, or disoriented. Never take more medication than exactly the way it is prescribed. If you have questions, ASK! It is your body, your mind, & you know when something is not right.
You have every right to speak up. Trust your own feelings & instincts. You will get passed the fear. This is new for you & how you feel is normal. Please post again & let us know how you are doing. There are many caring people here ready to help. I wish you all the best & success for feeling much better.
I feel your concern and confusion. I have read the other posts to your question. Trust these people. We have been where you are before. I take several medicines for my depression and anxiety. I use to think that I didn't need to and I robbed myself of living a good, stable, productive life for many years. I take my medicine now and it really helps.
While what your husband thinks is important it is not his decision whether you take the medicine or not. That decision must be made by you. You know how you are feeling and what is bothering you.
Be strong and do what is right for yourself and your family. Living with mood swings and depression is no fun and not necessary.
Let us know how you are doing by keeping in touch,
well i am having the same symptoms but they seem so severe. im vibrating inside and muscle tension is intense .. just went to doctor and they put me on paxil started yesterday 2/10/11 2days now no improvement .. i asked for xanax to help that i knew id would help it helped in my last crisis. the doctors always act as if people are junkies and dont want to prescribe. i do need them badly just so i can breath. the tensions and shakes and not holding food down is crazy. i vomit every day for several days .i used xanax 2 year ago for approx i month then did nt take them any longer .. now im having anxiety attacks and i seem like the doctors think my mind is messed up . this type of getting sick and nerves has been around me for 20 years on and off depending on the stress level im in yet the doctors treat me as junkie . stressed and sick what do i do?
