    Hi there.. I had this condition for a year and a half. I would speak to the doctor immediately and stop the SSRI. Procyclidine and a beta blocker can be used to lessen the symptoms. I know how horrendous it can be to pace about all day. Please call the doctor ASAP. also stay away from anti sickness medications like meticlopramide as this will agrgrevate the condition. After you stop the anti depressants it should dissapear. My prayers are with you

    Hi Jill,

    I feel I am suffering with this as well.  I only started an AD and didn’t feel well.  I got right off of it but now 2 months later I am a mess.  I have to pace all day, very emotional, horrible nights trying to sleep.  When I do fall asleep I then wake up sometimes in a sweat feeling panic.  Any suggestions for me as well would be helpful! This is a nightmare!!

      Hi Barb- 

      Do you have severe anxiety with this condition?

      My anxiety is unbearable and at times I feel my life is over. Were you on Prozac, and if so, for how long?

    I do have severe anxiety and depression.  My Dr. gave me Mirtazapine which I never heard of.  I have never wanted to take any meds... I finally try one and I think it had an adverse reaction.    I know I only took it once but the night I tried it I kept getting rapid heartbeat and just didn’t feel right and have not since.  I do know I find myself pacing a good part of the day, very emotional and feel restless and tense.  I really don’t want to take any more meds!  I just went to an Integrative doctor who treats more natural... I am testing blood, urine and saliva just to make sure there is not something else going on.  Just want to feel like myself again!  Anxiety stinks!
