... stopped. After about 2 or 3 months, out of the blue my mind started going 90 miles an hour worrying about money and retirement and bills. I called my doctor and they gave me a two week prescription which I started taking 5 days ago. No improvement. I am getting really scared! Help! What do I do? I am being worn out!
This is what happens when people think they are better when they are on medication. It doesn't cure you, it eases the symptoms. You felt better because you were on the medication. Now you have to wait until it starts working again. You're going to have to get tot he dr and get a prescription to be on it longer. If that is what they gave you a script for. If not you still need to get to a dr for a script for it. You need to be on it, not stop it because you think you're cured.
