... after the first week or two of withdrawal. Suddenly for the past 2 weeks I have experienced crippling anxiety, way worse than pre-medication. I wake up and a wave of anxiety hits, I feel nauseous, (I have puked 3 times total since this started) the worst part is that I'm extremely emotional. I cry so easily. I had to take Xmas vacation early because I was afraid of bursting out in tears at work. I also am finishing up my first semester in school which is also stressful. I've read and heard of the concept of windows and waves. this is a really bad wave if it is one, how do I cope?
