I went to the dr today (another uti, aaargh) and told her about what has been going on with me. Although my bad anxiety is gone, I have "mini anxieties" that creep up on me, but no where near the intensity as with the mirena. She thinks that this episode is making me depressed and thinks I should try Wellbutrin. I don't , I feel like I'm just upset about my situation and scared, not depressed. So, I guess I was wondering what med you took, Claudia1969, and would you suggest staying off it, or do you think it has helped you at all. I don't know what to do at this point.
But, on the good note, she said scince I came in a few months ago, 2 other women have come in with anxiety issues that they thought was mirena related, and she told them both to consider taking it out. She said that although it wasn't her original thinking, she now realizes that the side effects are something she should look into. A small victory.
