I am currently a little over a month on the increased dose of hc 30 mg. I've been severely sick for over two years. Everything has done a 180 it seems. I am up moving without much effort. The biggest change.. is that I have a connection with my emotions again. I actually care about things. I want a relationship with a significant other. I was very introvert before. Very scared, anxious, it was hard for me to say I was with my girlfriend's or show it.
Before starting meds I was miserable. I never had a good day. I had moments where I would say some of the meanest things to my gf. All things within a short while I would regret! The smallest thing would set me off. I had so much anxiety I hated leaving the apartment. There were even times of compulsive thoughts. My outbursts ruined many friendships and a great relationship. I dont feel like the angry person anymore!
Is it normal to have behavior changes like this after being on the medication? Anyone have similar experiences?
Addisons can realy mess with your emotions, any thing from anger to deprsion. Look at potassium , blood sugars etc. Its a juggle. Ive been doing this for 40 years and even on meds emotions can still go mad.
I truly believe this has everything to do with emotions and mood changes. I have been going through the same thing. I have even been told by my husband and best friends that since I started my MEDS a little bit of the old Jo is back. I still have more bad times than good but I have just recently been diagnosed and started my MEDS.
