I can't take much more! Anxiety overwhelming!

Posted by Englishman006! on August 6, 2020, at 7:39:04

I've had it with my personality since I had a stroke 5 years ago. I thought I'd found the answer. I came off my blood pressure tablets and I have felt good for the last month. My sense of humour returned after it's long 5 year absence and other essential aspects of my character. Now I'm getting breakthrough anxiety and I can't tell where it's coming from.

I have been toying around with the idea of taking the occasional diazepam to offset SSRI numbness. I have't abused them, I read on here somewhere that it works. I don't how easy it is to get addicted but I haven't had a script filled since the 4th of March this year. That was for 50 x 5mg. Does that sound like a lot to you? I've had breaks of say 4 or 5 days without.

I take..

50mg (5x10) Dexamphetamine
20mg Memantine (to offset the anxiety caused by Dex)
300mg Lamotrigine
20mg Fluoxetine
30mg Mirtazapine
50mg Amisulpride (started recently)

The anxiety just creeps up on me while I'm watching a movie or whenever, like free floating anxiety. It started about a week ago. I started getting it really bad on Sunday when I suddenly felt fatigued, weak and nauseous. I thought I had covid, so I called the doc who sent me for a test. Straight after I was struggling to breath. Then I realised I was hyperventilating. I went home to bed but while I was laying there I wondered, was it all just anxiety. The test came negative btw. Since then I've struggled with it on and off.

I broke down in front the doc today not knowing what to do. I am on all the meds that used prevent anxiety. I'm alright at night and I sleep well but come tomorrow who knows..?

Should I try to hold out and leave the valium well alone?

Thanks for any help or suggestions.
