I don't know what is going on with me at the moment. The past few days i have been feeling on edge through out the day. Basically i am waking up ok but as soon as i become aware of my surroundings i start to feel anxious and have panic attacks, what for and what is triggering these feelings i just don't know. I know i'm not feling down as i am able to function, i'm not becoming manic as i am being sensible, but for the life of me i just can't help but feel constantly on edge, nervous, paranoid that people are out to get me and scared that if i get out of bed something bad will happen. I am travelling to middlesex friday to visit my mother for the weekend, maybe the thought of travelling and spending time outside of familiar surroundings is what is triggering the panic attack and anxiaty. I know i should speak to my doctor about this so i am going to monitor what i am like tonight nd make an appointment tomorrow as i really don't want to go away feeling like a nervous wreck. Sorry for the long post and if i seem to be babbling on.

Sorry to hear your feeling so anxious Colin :hug: There could be a number of reasons why you're feeling as you do, one could your trip to Middlesex, another could be as KP suggested side effects to your meds. The best person to speak to would be your GP.

Take care
:flowers:

The doc has given me some tablets called propranolol for the panic attacks and anxiaty, he says their a short release tablet so i can take as many as i need through out the day with a lesser risk of overdosing. With regards to the zopiclone i did not ask for any, my quetiapine has been changed to the prolonged release tablets as the other ones i was taking were the short release type and may be the reason for the panic attacks.

Hi Keepsafe,

Strange, the doc told me rather than swallow the tablets with a drink to put them under my tongue and let the saliva disolve them, apparantly that way they bi-pass the stomach and get into the blood stream quicker, how bizarre.
