I'm a 31 year old male and had been suffering from anxiety issues for almost a decade fro which I consulted a doctor long back. He had prescribed these meds (Venlift OD 75 -was eventually increased to 150 mg and Aplrazolam (Zolax) 0.5 mg was eventually increased to 1/1.5 mg) and had to be taken on daily basis. I ve been on and off meds for almost 11/12 years Dont remember when exactly i started. I ve been experienccing some extreme with drawal sympotoms after stopping the meds. I chose to stop abruptly as i didnt want to go back the medication again. its been almost 7 or 8 months now. I get extremely irritated at things like chatter and mingling, mostly anxious i can say. I lost my mom 3 years ago and around the same time my girl friend broke up too. I didnt know what to do then and started feeling very insecure most of the time. lack of motivation or to do anything. I have hard time even mingling and conversing with those who im close to. I work with a reputed start up search/recruitment firm and the work place environment messes my day to day activity as I need to get aalong with the colleagues. I dont feel attached to anyone here and i feel very inferior. I tried talking but nothing seems to be working. I dont want to quit here as they're sponsoring my education (BA.LLB)and as this is the only job which gives me flexibility. I dont have any ambition/goal in life and also finding it very difficult to focus on my studies. Please suggest me as to what to do. At the moment im consulting another psychiatrist and he has prescribed (Prodep 20 mg) daily 2 capsules after breakfast or lunch from past 2 months.
Wating in anticipation,
