I have been suffering from major anxiety problems most of my life. onset about age 14. I didn't start taking medication until I was in my 20's. since then I have been on: Paxil, Celexa. and now I am on: Buspar 4 times a day, Ativan 4 times a day, and recently (last thursday) my DR prescribed me Zoloft. 1/2 a pill for 6 days, and now I am taking 1 pill a day for 7 days and after that will be on it twice a day everyday.
I am wondering if taking all of these meds at the same time will have any ill effect on me. (so far I have been alright) but I don't know how else to get my anxiety under control. It's really really bad when I am off my meds, I can't even have family over without having to hide out in my bedroom or go into the bathroom to get sick to my stomach. On my meds, I am somewhat social but still find it difficult to leave the house at times. It mostly depends on where we're going (new places, etc are the worst).
any help or advice that anyone here can offer is greatly appreciated. I'm so tired of feeling this way. I just wish I could be normal. sane.
I want my life back and I don't know how to get it back.
the only real... side effect... from the meds is that I'm tired. all the time. it's like I never get enough sleep.
anyways, like I said. help or advice is appreciated, thanks again.
