Definitely go back and tell the doctor. I had to try 3 different ones until I got one that worked for me. It's a process but things get better.
I literally had 14 before I found the one. (&gave up twice for a few years in the process)
I'm glad you both find what worked for you, that's so awesome. OP, what was the medication they gave you? if it's short acting (for acute anxiety i.e. panic attacks) then you definer need to go talk to your doc. if it's a long acting medication that needs to get into your system, like an SSRI, then this is a fairly common side effect. but on the upside that side effect will go away with time. either way, at the very least call your doctor's office and tell them what's happening and go from there.
So does getting spanked as a kid, not getting a participation trophy, hurting yourself trying to do something but doing it anyway, and not being coddled on the Internet by people like you. Also, there's a lot of people between baby boomers and millennials. To include "millennial aged" people who aren't.
Bloopaloop, you should know how mental health works.. regardless of your generation. OPs do tend to see these posts and I get it.. maybe getting coddled on the internet isn't the way to go. But why throw negativity their way? They are just people. As a mental health advocate, I pray you never have to come across it in your family. Because although it is a disease that cannot be seen, it is VERY real.
Yeah, you sound like you’ve lived a tough life... I actually think getting spanked as a kid has caused a lot more anxiety than the opposite... there’s a reason many countries have made it illegal. That being said, anxiety disorders aren’t a new thing, it’s just that people from your generation have made it shameful to admit you have a problem, making people suffer in silence and never seeking help.
