With just a few days left in the U.K, I’m feeling anxious about what’s to come. These feelings have noticeably increased my ED behaviours and thoughts. Although I know I’d be having some nerves at the moment due to impending change, I’m also coming off a medication at the same time which isn’t helping.
Now, this drug isn’t something I take for my mental health. I suffered some extreme migraines, eventually resulting in taking a tablet 3 times a day everyday to prevent them. Roll on 1 or 2 years later and I’m in a situation where it’s been several months since my last migraine. I lowered my medication dose and felt no negative side effects whatsoever. I thought I was also doing fine with none of this drug at all…until yesterday. Hello throbbing head and feelings of sickness 👍🏻
In higher doses, the medication can be used for anxiety (and on very rare occasions I did take it to solve panic attacks), but as I hadn’t had an anti-anxiety effect on a daily basis from the tabletsI have been surprised by the definite increase in my anxiety since I stopped taking it a few days ago. There’s no doubt that it’s playing a part, as I’m very aware of my anxious thoughts and triggers. So frustrating , and I am slightly clueless as to whether I should start taking them daily again or what.
A headache AND more anxiety? I could start a sales pitch ahahaha
I hope you’re all well
Oh the med game. I hate it so. I say go back to what works for now. Don’t compromise your new contract. Your doc can play with doses when you get back. ?
I agree. I think I’m gonna say at my doctors appointment that the headaches are coming back
Do it. You can figure the rest out after your job contract ends and not have to deal with all that stuff while you’re working. 🙂
Thanks, I agree! 👍🏻👍🏻
