Yes, we do hate that. Especially those of us who are anxious!! Have you heard of “Tapping?” Something to read about, if you’re interested. I have had some luck with it. Gary Craig or Nick Ortner have info you can google.
I can relate to your love for your Grandson. I have a very close bond with mine too!!

How awful to be going through that when you already have anxiety. I take it you can't see a different doctor? The one you have gives ME anxiety. Without a prescription, the only thing I have heard is Benadryl.
Anxiety is the worst. Bless you and good luck.

Do you know what causes your leg pain?

Mar 18, 2018 · Switching antidepressants in Depression & Anxiety

Not sure if I’m doing this right. I went through a terrible bout of anxiety. I’ve been depressed & worried for years, but this anxiety threw me for a loop. We tried different things, but only Xanax worked. He didn’t like my using that “as needed.” Personally, I don’t see why not. Then we tried Abilify & the anxiety disappeared. After a few weeks, I started feeling restless, muscles twitching, etc. Stopped Abilify. Then he wanted me to increase Effexor to two caps (150 ea) in morning & one (150) at night. I refused to take that much, so here we are trying to get off Effexor & onto Paxil. Oh, I forgot to mention that my blood pressure, which has always been normal, was suddenly high. Now I’m on Beta Blocker also. One other time that I weaned off of SSRI, I had terrible headaches, and something that someone told me was “phantom smells.”  Scary!! I’m very weary of all this nonsense, and to top it off, I am moving to another state in a few months, and have to find a new doctor. Thank you for caring.

I am also under a doctor’s care. Getting off of many years of Effexor & switching to Paxil. I’ve been through debilitating anxiety in the past year. He has me taking Effexor (150) in am, 12.5 mg Paxil with lunch, and skipping nighttime 150 nighttime Effexor. I have been opening capsules at night & pouring out 1/2. Also taking 1 mg of Xanax at bedtime. Is it ok to mix small dose of Paxil with Effexor while tapering off? I remember the last time I got off of SSRI, I got down to taking a few “balls” out of capsules for months. Still had headaches & head chills.
