I'm a caregiver for my mum. She suffered from GAD and Depression for the past 20 years and have been taking Serotonin and Xanax. Recently Xanax does not help her anymore (she increases the dosage). She was admitted to hospital and now taking Effexor + clonazepam + Valdoxan.
Every Morning when she wake up, she will complain of heartburn. The panic attack will come a few times in the morning and afternoon where she will feel heartburn and nausea. She will be very depressed and does not know what to do and constantly asking how she can pass by the day. Her voice changes when she feel nervous (that where she know).
During evening time, strangely she seems like a different person where she become calm and feel much more relax.
We are puzzled by her behavior and thinking what could be the reason? Whether could it be any symptom of other mental condition or withdrawal symptoms due to Xanax.
