Going to call doc on Monday, things are just getting worse....

On Jan. 3 my doctor took me off Escitalopram, and put me on Fluoxetine and Buspirone. She told me the first few weeks were going to be rough while I adjust. I know its barely been 2 weeks that it's not fully kicked in yet. But what has me worried is that I have gone from crying all of the time, to being angry all of the time. (Except on rare occasions where I feel overwhelmed by all our current crap going on)  I don't want to live my life angry, and I am really hoping this changes as the meds get built up in my system....


Ok, so now we are a week later and things are getting worse instead of better. I've had some pretty horrific dreams the past few nights (lucky for me, I don't remember them when I get up in the morning, only that I was having them). I'm going to have to call the doc on Monday after work. Something is either interacting wrongly or something I just plain wrong. I can't continue down this path... who know where it might lead.

Just because I understand an acknowledge what I am worrying about is silly, doesn't mean I'm able to stop worrying about it.

What harm do you anticipate from what may have been bad dreams?

NOTE: I'm not a doctor, and particularly not yours, so there may be factors I'm unaware of. Therefore all suggestions are general in nature and you should consult your doctor before following any of it, especially before changing med doses.

Kissa, I am going through the same thing. I went from mild anxiety to anxiety attacks every day. You're strong. You will get through it.
