I’ve just started on new medication for OCD I was diagnosed 10 years ago and was travelling well until 6 months ago, previously I had been on different medication The new medication is making me so anxious all the time I’ve been taking it for 5 weeks. My intrusive thoughts are not there as much but I’m so anxious from the time I wake up till I go to sleep about having the thoughts. I feel as the I am worrying all the time, I worry about how I will feel ahead of time and I worry that it will be like this forever.
@R8RS Hi R8RS and welcome to the forums time to go back to the doctor/psychiatrist and tell him/her what your symptoms are. 5 weeks is still early days but if in doubt I would just go and talk to your doctor. greenpea
Thanks for response, yep haves booked in, I’ve been off work for 5 weeks after Quiting my last job as it very stressful with a lot of responsibilities, I’ve stated a new job today which has kept me busy but I’m away from home for a week. Hopefully keeping busy and active will help
