Hello....I have suffered from anxiety attacks since I was a child. I'm 57 now. I'm on three different anti-depressants, elavil, lexapro and lamictal. Also on xanax. Altogether, the doc has me on 14 different meds, and I'm worried to death about what these meds are doing to me. I can't seem to stop taking the elavil....without it, I become physically ill, especially nauseated. I've taken it since 1976 It just seems that I've become so tolerant to all my medications that they don't help at all.
The anxiety has affected my health in so many ways, there isn't enough room to list them here. I feel like a walking chemical factory, with no way out. I am not a creature of CHANGE, and the least little bit, and I'm on the ceiling! Please, if anyone can give me some advice, I would be so thankful.
