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 advice is of a general 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.
