Recently My father in law died , my wife was laid off work & I had increased stressors at work. My anxiety started to come back & take over. My doctor upped the Lexipro to 20mg it seemed to make things worse. My Dr switched to Zoloft a week ago first 50mg now upping to 100mg. She also started me on 50mgsTrazadone to sleep. Well the other day I almost felt normal I was happy but then as the day went on yesterday I got shaky and the anxiety spiked. I almost feel worse now than before. The other thing is i always feel cold & shake is this a side affect. As for the Tazodone , it makes me drossy & may make me fall asleep but not very long, I feel like I am going out of my mind. I just want these feelings to go away.
In my medical opinion, i would talk to your physician about switching to an "S.N.R.I" such as cymbalta and take a low dose dopamine inhibitor like wellbutrin at night. and discontinue trazadone. but as far as your anxiety goes,at this stage in your life, no anti-deppressent is going to help with that kind of high anxiety . i suggest also requesting valium for the time being. (i am a med student and do know what i'm talking about but, as always do not change anything without consulting your physician. These are just my suggestions)
