I had my very first visit with my therapist yesterday. Yeah Me : )
I told her that I had started taking meds and after the 4th day I started experiencing paranoia. So I stopped taking them. She said, good that probably means that I didn't need the medication in the first place.
So now I'm confused. Has anyone else experienced paranoia after taking medication? If so, did your doctor just take you off the medication and put you on another one?
I'm so confused. Is she saying that I don't need meds at all or is she saying that I have something different from anxiety and that's why I had the symptom of paranoia?
I know I should've asked this then but I was having a panic attack and couldn't concentrate and kind of blanked out at that moment.
So I'm confused now to say the least. Do meds cause paranoia or is there something else going on....
Just wondering in case someone else has had the same situation as me.
I had this experience; I stopped taking the med immediately and my doc said that was the right thing to do. But I was on other meds, as needed, for anxiety so I just used those for a long time. Maybe you need an as-needed antianxiety med? I would call the doc's office and ask; tell your therapist that u were having a panic attack asa she spoke and that is why you didn't ask then...Good luck and God bless!
