almost every person who takes a new drug fears it will do something bad to them. The odds of it actually causing something to go wrong is pretty rare. heres a little tip. when a severe reaction happens with med it gets reported. it get listed in the pamphlet. what they dont tell us is what was wrong with the person who did flip out on this med? ive had anxiety since i was a kid, im 33 now. ive tried many meds with no serious side effects.
I can tell you that sometime with antidepressants. you might start to feel a little worse for a week or two until the med is in your system and your body adjusts to it. the majority of the symptoms people will experience with meds is just from the anxiety tha they have about taking it. i know first hand because i am scared to death of new meds. i take claritin for alergies and i have been wanting to switch to zyrtec but my anx iety makes me think it wil cause me to flip out or have an allergic reaction. so, i feel your pain. give the meds a chance. give them some time they arent instant relief. if you do experience any change in mood or behavior, swelling of the throat, difficulty breathing, rash or hives then all your doctor. but be aware that just by knowing what side effect to look out for your mind can recreate some of them like difficulty breathing which will not be as severe as allergic reaction or you could start to feel some tightening of the throat which is anxiety not real throat closure. use your best judgement to discern anxiety from real symptoms. hope you get some relief soon
