Turn on some music that stimulates you take deep breathes start coloring or watching out the window and focus on something else...the more you focus on this the worst the anxiety will get....And be sitting on something soft incase you get dizzy and fall back...I know your in middle of switching meds and your anxiety is high...Try not to read into this thought and reverse it and see if it helps....If you have a banana eat it while relaxing....Hope this helps you my friend
