Ds2 is now 12 weeks and I decided to go on antidepressants last week as my PND, mostly the anxiety, has been really awful and getting worse. The dr started me on 25mg for four days and then 50mg after that as he said it can make anxiety worse so he wanted me to ease into. I've only been taking it a total of a week and the 50mg since Friday and I am feeling awful, very down and panicky. I know this is common, I know I've told others on the hub that sometimes antidepressants make you feel worse before you get better or it takes a while for them to work but this is actually the first time it's ever happened to me. Usually they just don't work and it takes a while to work out what dosage I need but I've never actually felt worse before and I'm feeling really scared right now. On top of that MIL is visiting and although she's here to help I am finding having her here really stressful and that's making me feel pretty crap as well, she's not doing anything bad besides ordinary mil annoyances but I'm not comfortable around her when I'm depressed.
Can somebody just tell me it's going to get better? Because right now I just feel like crying and running away.
