Is the Prozac helping with your anxiety? If it isn't, you need a different approach. The stomach problem is a common one with anxiety sufferers and especially those with phobias. But it's also possible it's a side effect of taking the Prozac if this problem didn't exist before starting that med and it started after you started taking it. Antidepressants commonly cause stomach problems. But so does anxiety. There are a lot of natural remedies for digestive problems, but usually when this happens you're also having diarrhea or constipation, which are problems with both anxiety and the meds taken to treat it. The solution is to fix the problem, hopefully by changing how you think in therapy but if it's taking meds, taking one that works. It's not that easy, though, to find one that works completely. But again, if there's been little to no improvement about being agoraphobic, the med isn't working well. Where is the pain? Is it right after eating? Some details can help determine if a natural remedy might help. One thing that's easy to try is chamomile. It is a mild relaxant but also relaxes the digestive system. But there are a lot of natural remedies out there that can help certain things, but which ones depend on what is going on. If it's just anxiety giving you butterflies, you have to calm down the anxiety; if it's anxiety or meds causing a digestive problem, there are gentle remedies that might help with that. Are you also on a benzo or other relaxant or just the Prozac?
I'm sorry to hear this. So, this only happens when you leave the house? The thing with antidepressants is that they can be very effective, however, sometimes it is trial and error to find he right one. Prozac may or may not be it. Perhaps a dosage change is necessary (increasing it) or another one may do better. Talk to your doctor about this. How is the anxiety overall? You ARE willing to leave the house now and are at a lower level of anxiety? That would be great and is an improvement I assume. Do you also do therapy with it? There is CBT therapy which is known to be very helpful. May help with coping skills and ideas on how to leave without the stomach issue. I'd look into that.
You are talking about CBD oil, I believe. I too have read good things about it with the studies they have (which isn't a huge number at this point.) I'm interested in learning more about it for my son who has pretty bad anxiety. We haven't yet tried it. Is medical marijuana legal in your state? I have read very clearly that one should consult their doctor, inform them and allow their input when starting CBD oil. Dosing can be a bit of a question mark and you want a doctor to just know all you are doing even if it is self medication.
But I'll read more about that and see if I can find any good info to link for you. Hang in there.
