Hi There, I wonder if anyone has got any useful feedback on how they deal with anxiety? Latest drug that has been suggested is Pregabalin but reading about it, it sounds like the side effects are horrendous!
Have tried so many anti d’s with no effect and presently on Fluoxetine which doesnt appear to be doing anything.
Am on waiting list at Salford for therapy but waiting list is 12 months.
Practice Mindfulness and Meditate daily.
Hi, which mindfulness course are you going on? I just wondered also why you came off the Venlafaxine as I tried them but too any side effects! xx
I start on the 5th of June in the church hall at the entrance to the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford.
I got on very well with venlafaxine but I also had painful legs like constantly climbing a steep hill and foot pain.
My tremor is in my right leg which shakes my whole body when I stand I also do not naturally swing my left arm and I hand is unable to close.
Sorry I digress the duoloxatine was seen as an antidepressant that may help the pain at the same time as my depression.
Hi, thanks for the update. I was deciding not to start on Pregabalin after the horror stories but was speaking to the nurse practitioner at doctors yesterday and she said she was on them. Convinced me to give them a go so will start tonight and put an update on. I don’t actually think I am depressed , I think it is the anxiety relating to changes in brain as I don’t actually worry about anything in particular, just anxiety!!!
Can I ask how you got on with Pregabalin, as I started it today?
