hi everyone,,this is my first time on here.I have suffered with agoraphobia and mental health issue for over 30years.tried more forms of medication,treatment in and out of mental hospital.s
7years ago I lost my mother to leacaumia,and I had to cope with that and I thought my issues were under control,so I decide to stop and wean myself off all medications,which I did and felt totally in control.
but then a year ago I lost 2 very special friends and my life was turned upside down.
I am current taking alterave natural supplement for anxiousity and stress.
My gp has suggested I start back on a new medication called VALDOXAN
so after three week I feel worse.my gp has suggested uping the dosage but
my gp know tell me it too expensive so we will have to try something else.
what should I do.?
As I want my life back,and be able to get outside my house and enjoy my famiy
who don't understand why I slipped back.
can anyway help me out with suggestion.

Hi Tigers120 and welcome to the forum.

It sounds as though you've had a lot of stress and grieving to deal with. I hope that things start improving for you soon.

hello and welcome


A big :welcome: from me too.

I'm sorry you've been through so much.
We have a few members currently who struggle with agoraphobia. Take a look in the anxiety forum for posts on the topic.

I don't know of the medication you mention, but perhaps other will.
I hope you can find the support you need here.
