Thanks Christ Empowered,

I havent been given anything . The NHS is overstretched and are in the dark ages - they dont prescribe benzos although I do have a small amount of lorezapam which I got from my gp but I dont want to take it too often and get addicted or run out.
The anxiety feels chemical, like caused by parnate no longer working, and all the suppressed anxiety is no longer suppressed by the drug. I dont know how else to describe it, but it is mental torture
Parnate worked so well for me, if only I could get it to work again... I should be open to trying Effexor and Remeron but I really cant start experimenting again...and they have so many side effects...... Im hoping against hope that Marplan will work....that is probably not an objective way of thinking,. Thank you for responding and for your feedback. I think it is impossible to help me bearing in mind the limitations of the system here in uk. I do appreciate your post. Thank you. I have a friend who was given Lyrica , but she said it didnt help her - and since Im on an maoi, the nhs would not give it to me anyway.
