    I was all over the place the first few weeks, I'd have a few restless anxious days and then a few where I could barely get out of bed, so I'd say whatever you're feeling is probably normal, try not to worry about it and just focus on doing things to help the anxiety. I drank a lot of camomile tea and took promethazine to help me sleep. Meditation is good too, whatever helps. If it gets unbearable then go back to the doctor and see if they can try you on a different one. Good luck x
