Anxiety need help!

I have been lightheaded 24 hours a day for months now. I have had insomana all my life but now I am tired all the time. I will get anziey out of no were. I can wake up with it at night or in the morning. I will have it some times all day long it will get my blood pressure up. I am on 20 mg of celexa I have tried 40 mg but it did not change anything. I am not sure if it is the right med for me. I got this anxiety out of no where I worrie about health problems all the time and worrie about new things I see on my body and the lighheadness only makes it worse becasue it is always their as a remminder. I am not sure what to do or how to control my anxiety. I have talked to a therapist but she does not seem to help she tells me things I already know like keep busy. I do but my mind wounders and I focus on things and can not get them out of my thoughts even if I try. I feel like a want to cry but this med will not even let me do that. Every day I a struggle and my wife does not understand what I am going through and can not take me complaining so I have to keep it to my self it is soooo hard. I just want to feel somewhat normal and feel good and not lightheaded. can any one provide any suggestions or help.

Re: Anxiety need help!

You should contact your Dr about how you are feeling. Maybe you could increase you medication just a little. How long have you been on Celexa? I have been on Celexa just started a week ago, for the same reasons you are on it. I couldn't rid of the Fog I have been in 24 hours a day. I take Klonopin at pm to help me sleep. I take a .5 mg and cut it in fours. I take just bite. I know that when you are tired anxiety can be at it's worst. Also, if you are unhappy with your therapist - you should try another until you are happy.

Re: Anxiety need help!

Thanks for your response. I been on Celexa since July. I started on 20 mg and then in Augest I went up to 40 mg. I just went back down to 20 mg last week becasue I did not see a diffrence in the level of medication. It is all so frustrating.

Re: Anxiety need help!

I would then call your Dr for sure. Maybe you could discuss switching to a new medication. I was on Lexapro a few months back and had to discontinue because it was too strong for me. Let me know how you are feeling.
