it really is the worse it was to the point i was scared to get up and walk around bc my anxiety causes me dizziness. so i have been doing breathing exercises, and positive thought affirmations telling myself it is just anxiety, and once i start moving it gets better but i am still learning to deal, bc it does last the longest in the morning. i also have been doing the tense and release exercises, i think it really helps. you can find it on excelatlife.com  i love this, i downloaded pretty much all the apps. i read the articles and listen to the audios and its free. :)

Yes!!
I get it the worst as well in the mornings, has been happening since school started to give me anxiety, all the way back to elementary school. I also feel anxiety before I go to bed, usually because I am anticipating all the things that need to get done the next day. In the mornings I have instant anxiety and I feel so sick to my stomach that I skip breakfast most of the time.

One thing that used to help me, that I stopped doing and need to start again, is writing down all the things that are giving me anxiety for the day, everything from having to call someone to having to drive somewhere or get a paper or something done, just getting it out of my head and on paper first thing in the morning seems to help me focus on one thing at a time as opposed to it all at once. I hope you can find a way to reduce your morning anxiety!

Hi Kenzie

I went through this up until recently.

If I woke up earlier than the alarm, I'd be fine, though.  :laugh3: But, when I waited for the alarm, I'd wake up with palpitations (a symptom that doesn't bother me), along with feeling wide awake- shaky inside,
fog head and unable to concentrate. It would set the tone for most of the day.

With our adrenal glands being off, releasing cortisol, etc, that's why it happens.

I did a little test on myself, though.

Being that I noticed that when I woke up before the alarm and was fine, I decided not to set one on weekends, and just get up when I got up. Oddly (or maybe not so oddly!), when I woke up without a set time, I was fine.

Also noticed if I woke up in the middle of the night to drink some water ...also fine. Only seemed to happen when I was on a "time clock".

I've since gotten back on Prozac and Lorazepam. The first 3 weeks were rough....but I'm over the hump and can now get up with the alarm without a problem. I feel fine in the a.m. and all day now.

PS...fellow Long Islander here.  :action-smiley-065:

Good to hear that you're on a new antidepressant.  :laugh3: 

Let us know how it goes  with the new med. Will you be allowed to use the Xanax with the Brintellix until it starts to work?

Good luck! :action-smiley-065:

It seems that your new med will be all you'll need if your doc said no to xanax.

I have GAD and I always used to have morning anxiety waking up.  And my stomach was tight.

But I would do yoga to relax me and self message.  Now I take Klonopin and I haven't been sense
the morning dread as much.
