Hi, I'm a 68 year old woman who has had difficulty breathing and talking for the last 5 months. My Dr says it is Anxiety but I have never felt that I am a anxious person. Now however when I try to talk it very often comes out in severe aspirations one or two words at a time and barely more than a whiper. It is frustrating for me and for those trying to listen to me. Occasionally this will be accompanied by a mild dizzziness. I am on 20mg of Fluoxetine daily and also take on an as needed basis .5mg of Lorazepam. This doesn't seem to have much affect at all. Any suggestions?
Shortness of breath could just be your anxiety. Sometimes the start of a new anti depressive medicine can increase your anxiety; but it shouldnt last. I am on the same thing. 20 mg of fluoxetine, and 1 mg of lorazepam 3 times a day.
What works for me with the shortness of breath and dizziness feeling is deep breathing exercises. In through the nose out through the mouth. Always remember to breathe with your stomach.

Also. these meds can produce dizziness as a side effect and or slurred speech. The lorazepam.
