    How to get through Christmas if you suffer from anxiety or depression?

    I am on holiday for 3 weeks and forgot to bring my antidepressant meds (flouxetine). I was fine for the first few days but i have suddenly become very, very anxious.
    I take the flouxetine for panic attacks and agoraphobia. I am in the USA and am many miles away from home so an attack of agoraphobia is really NOT a good thing.I can't eat anything at the moment because I am so anxious and I am not enjoying my holiday at all.

    Can you call your doctors for another script? Or go to an urgent care and explain the situation?

    I once quit taking an antidepressant cold turkey and I felt horribly sick.It literally felt like I had electric shocks running through my body (I know that sounds crazy but I've talked with other people who have also experienced that during med withdrawals). After a few days I ended up curled up in a ball screaming over and over again and had to be taken to the hospital. Withdrawals can be REALLY bad.Please call your doctor. He/she might be able to prescribe you medicine on vacation and you can look at goodrx for good deals for your script.
