I am fairly new to anxiety. I've had it in the past but nothing like what I have been reading here.
I have been trying to get my hypothyroidism under control since early this year. The past 6 weeks the anxiety has become constant. The only way that I can describe it is, it was as if someone would walk up behind me a say Boo every 3-4 min. all day long. A constant & repeating adrenal rush that had me ready to jump out of a 2nd story window.
I gave up & saw my Dr. last Thurs & he gave me Lexapro 10mg. I started it Thurs so that by yesterday I had only been on it 4 days. I spent all day on this board reading everything that I could find about Adrenalin & Lexapro
I ran across some posts about Magnesium, calcium & Adrenals. Knowing that Adrenal issues play a big part into Hypothyroidism I went to the kitchen took some Mag & calcium around 11:00 AM & within an hour the adrenal rushes stopped. I took it again last night & around 11:00 today & have had the most peaceful day that I have had in a couple of months.
A question. Could the Lexapro have kicked in this quick? Is this a placebo effect? I have learned so much reading this board, I just have to say, I truly hope that everyone of you can soon find some peace.
