I have mild depression and anxiety. The anxiety caused severe weight loss. Luckily my gp got me on some medication which has helped a lot. I am much less anxious and I don’t feel depressed most of the time and I am back to my normal weight which is great.
The medication has a few mild side affects, one being night sweats, the other is I don’t sleep well. Both are a small thing I know. I recently reduced my medication by 1/4 of a tablet and was still going well. I then reduced by another 1/4 and fell in a heap. My Dr says that’s ok, I won’t be on them for ever. I am greatful for MOM website and the Mum members for posting stories for me to read when I can’t sleep.
I am also greatful I got help when I needed it
