Medication Reduction Leading to More Depressive Symptoms
I’ve had some medication adjustments done for my anti-depressants about a month ago and it’s making things really tough for me. I can feel more symptoms of my depression and anxiety breaking through, and I’ve been feeling very overwhelmed at work over the past week. I’ve often felt the need to take half a day off when I’m in my office and I’ve had trouble focusing on my tasks. I’ve been really restless, irritable and unmotivated, and it is completely unlike how I usually am. It’s pretty prominent that even my colleague has noticed it. I don’t really know how to describe it because it doesn’t feel like just work fatigue, it’s just plain horrible.
I’ve already made an appointment to see my doctor earlier to discuss this and make changes to my dosage but it’s going to take awhile and I feel so overwhelmed by the fact that it’s going to be like this for the next couple of weeks. It’s Monday tomorrow where I am, and I’m so anxious about it and worried that I’ll end up taking the day off and having it affect my job (I take time off to see my medical team quite often so it’s worrying). I hate the feeling and I hate that I feel so helpless until things get better. I feel like I’m going to have a breakdown soon and I’ve no idea how to make things better.
