I'm new to the forum and was hoping to seek out some advice. I am a 31 year old male and have suffered from GAD for over 7 years. I have looked into all sorts of alternative therapy but it has become clear that I definitely need to be on some sort of antidepressant. The problems is EVERY AD I have tried in the past 7 years gives me intolerable nightmares and night sweats. All other side effects I can handle but this problem leaves me almost incapacitated by the morning.
I have tried fluoxetine, escitalopram, sertraline, venlafaxine, paroxatine and now need to to discontinue from imipramine for the same reason. I have also tried to add other drugs like buspirone, pregabalin and sleeping aids but they make no difference.
Has anyone else had this problem and found a way to manage it? Please help!
