The feelings of frustration and crying infer that there may be some depression along with the anxiety. Prozac is a good SSRI. Why do you think Cymbalta or Lexapro would work better? Have you discussed your desire for a change in meds? Diazepam is also a good med for your situation. I guess you need some dose adjustment or med change if they just aren't working. Once again this is all stuff you need to discuss with your doctor. A brain injury can certainly throw off your chemical balance and worsen conditions. Hopefully when the brain mends itself you will see a significant improvement in symptoms. Good luck and keep us posted!
Thanks for a reply. I have read coexisting anxiety and depression. I don't feel depressed. Maybe I am. Usually I am happy. Mu family sees me happy. My episodes always start with fear. I am usually happy until the unsettled times approach. I don't understand feelings a lot though.
This week a very bad episode. I am feeling overwhelmed by many unsettled times. I don't like a lot of things that procedure my fears. For example, I don't like sound or change. Overwhelming! Then frustration, fear, screamed, hitting myself, crying, and Diazepam goes me to sleep. Is this panic attack? What is happening? I shouldn't act this way! Am I crazy?
In between I am fearing different things. Sometimes my behavior and triggers. Sometimes sound, change, talking, hospitals, doctors, etc. I like quiet activity and have fun when there are no unsettled times.
My doctors have too many opinions that are different at each other on medicine. They don't have symptoms. I ask in this community which medicine I can consider well and which ones are not well. Still understand people different brain chemistry but I please need opinions and support. Anything is help. Thank you.
