I stopped the Rivotril and the spinning stopped but sometimes I have to take it to stop the nervousness is this normal or what would you recomend that I do?
You are 48 years old. In my opinion 143/72 is normal to you. Why in the Earth you take any pills? For your anxiety go out door A LOT. Nature can help you balancing your body and mind.
Self-control by yoga breathing meditation walking etc can be very easy to reach, all those are more natural ways, then the medication that can making you more harm. Just an opinion.
