I had to withdraw from training for a marathon I would have run in 2 weeks time. Since being on the medication I gained 24Ibs (2 stone), which of course slowed me right down, my gait changed and I no longer had the energy to hit the right pace, finish my training runs/intervals.
Has anyone else got good, bad, ugly experiences to share on this?
Sorry Hillheader, misread your post.....I thought you said medication as opposed to meditation.
I would still talk to your Doctor and/or a counsellor and see how they can help with the anxiety/panic attacks. I was getting panic attacks on a daily basis middle of the night, any time in fact - it was out of control.
After 3 months of counselling with a variety of 'professionals' I have managed to get back on an even keel.
To help me sleep I take MELATONIN, which is a natural sleep remedy. I specifically asked my doctor to prescribe something naturally occuring. This is really good stuff.
