Update-started the lexapro at 5mg(low dose) and had 2 back 2 back vertigo room spinning attacks. My neuro said my brain just needed to adjust to the medicine. But my anxiety related shortness of breath has completely been wiped away.
The topamax definitely induced asthma but left me with a air hungry shortness of breath that I have determined was definitely anxiety that I just couldn’t rid. I feel 1 million times better on the 5mg lexapro and have no shortness of breath!
Crazy how anxiety hides itself. I was convinced something was wrong with my lungs and heart I went and got checked and scanned from head to toe and nothing!
I still can feel underlying dizziness after I eat a lot or am really tired but I’m functioning 85% with a 2/4 year old and part time job so I am extremely happy I’m not trying to feel perfect. I am no longer on that rocking swaying boat and I feel like I’ve been given a new life. To anyone reading this you WILL get better just keep pushing. Also I COMPLETELY believe in the dizzy cook and HYH diet. The only times I have had room spinning vertigo were days I thought I was rock proof and could eat whatever I wanted and it gives me reality check FAST.
