  1. Has anyone tried Pharmacogenetic Testing (PGT Testing)? i am having it done tomorrow to eleviate being a guinea pig. i have tried almost all meds and different dosages and this test is supposed to pinpoint the best one.
  2. I had no idea pills that were supposed to help anxiety could make it worse. Did you feel like someone took over your brain? That is how I felt. I have felt like a guinea pig for years and years and I too am real sensitive to meds so that is why I want to do this genetic testing. I will let you know how it goes. It's called PGT testing. I wonder if anyone else on this site has done it. Pharmacogenetic Testing
  3. When you say you felt sick on it, what exactly do you mean? Like stomach or more anxiety or both?
  4. Hi All: I thank you so much for your comforting replies. It's so wonderful to not feel alone. I don't know about you but I have been on a number of different meds and have never experienced this start up anxiety (worrying about worrying panic). Normally I would switch meds if I just felt they weren't working, meaning the felt the same on them as not on them. It's as if someone has taken over my mind and telling it to panic and freak out and go in fear mode because something bad is going to happen. This has happened on and off for the past 2 weeks daily. I take a xanax to go to sleep so sleeping hasn't been too much of a problem. I have managed to function with my kids and my work but its hard to get past the hopelessness that this will soon go away and that its from the meds and not from something else. I go to a PCP and in my experience, they blow me off to a point I feel bad 'bothering' them and don't find any comfort. I finally made an app with a psych who specializes in the genetic testing that tells you what is the best drug for your body and how much you can tolerate. This has totally cheered me up, as much as I can be in this state. Has anyone had this done?
  5. Can you let me know what start up side effects you have experienced?  I went from 5mgs to 10 mgs after being on 5mgs for 2 weeks and the 5 to 10 upgrade has been torture for the last week.  It's been 12 days now that I have been on the 10 mgs and I have been having mini panic attacks all day long and have this worrying about worrying constantly.  Has anyone else had this happen? I'm really really really trying to hang in there.  I have been on every AD med on low dosages.  I was on prozac for years and years but felt it stopped working and so many people recommended this one so have been trying it.  i was on it about 12 years ago and it totally numbed me but can't understand why this is happening this time around.  I feel so alone and its so hard to function with 2 kids and a full time job.  

  6. Thank you so much. Did you feel you were going crazy? It's been like this for 8 days and changes by the hour. I am really trying to stay with it but it can really bring you down and make it hard to function. It's like someone has taken over your brain and you are fighting to get it back. Does that make sense? I have read other blogs on here where people say the same and to stay with it but when you are in the 'trenches' it seems like it will never end. I know everyone is different....sometimes that's good and something its bad. i hear people feeling better after a few days and that is not me and makes me more upset.
