I am on day 20 I have felt good for like three days, yesterday afternoon I felt a little anxious. went to bed early and slept well, but woke up at like 5 and was anxious again and felt nauseated. I feel like im in a fog again today. I want to move forward not backward.

    Day 20 is very early and you will have lots of up and down days. Im part way through week 5 and still have anxious days or moments, they reckon it takes at least 6-8 weeks to start to settle. Im still having side effects and symptoms of anxiety, just try and plough through and youll get there

      Thank you for the words of advice. I have taken this medicine before and I know it takes a little while to get in your system and regulate, but I guess I dont remember all these side effects. I want to feel like myself again. I teach and I have two children and I feel like I dont want to do anything again just tired and blah. hoping this is just a down day.

      Im the same, i was previously on this about 5 years ago for a few months and dont remember any of the side effects the first time. I think it depends on the reason for being on it as last time it was to help get through my divorce battle whereas this time its for my bad health anxiety

    yes knowing others feel how I do makes me feel better. I feel like I want to be alone and I dont like this feeling. I am scared I am going to stay this way. so knowing you feel like I do makes me feel like there is light. I just enjoyed three great days and then to go backwards just stinks. but I assume having some good days means it is helping me and I getting there.
