I can understand: why you feel groggy the next day. You are on some sedating medications. Please let the prescribing psychiatrist know so that your medications can be optimized. Take care.

Indeed: Did you have a specific question? You should discuss your symptoms with the prescribing doctors. Diazepam has a fairly short half life. Its hard to use this medication for generalized anxiety disorder because of this and other reasons (sedation, tolerance etc) Methotrexate use may be an issue (some blood work may be needed to check a few things) Again, let your doctors know how you feel.

MEDICATION: Best to discuss medication with your Psychiatrist. If uncomfortable with your Dr. consult another for a second opinion. Have a physical exam by a Dr. to determine if you have a physical illness. Consult with a Clinical Psychologist for psychotherapy with ZOOM sessions. Fears and anxiety could be heightened due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Stay safe & hopeful to elevate your immune system.
