    Hi Sophie!

    Just wanted to share my experience with you for some help and support.

    I started on 20mg and was on that for 3 months before I upped to 30mg. When I started again I felt like I was back at square one. It took at least 4 weeks to adjust again. I was suffering from lethargy and headaches and inability to focus. I switched to taking the pills at night which really helped! 

    This may be hard to hear but it took me a solid 6 months to start feeling better enough for the side affects to stop worrying me. Every side affect I suffered from would trigger my anxiety (as a lot of my anxiety is health related). So it was tough. I also went through a shocking period of depression and felt like I could not longer cope. Now that I am through it I am able to function so much better in my day to day. I can cope with my anxiety so much better (it will never fully go away for me). I am so happy and calm.

    So although it can be unbelievably horrible at times it is worth it. You need a really good support base and someone to help you through the bad days. But stick at it. The medication is working, getting used to living without anxiety is a whole learning experience. its tough.

    Good luck to you!

    Hi I was on 20mg for two weeks then went up to 30mg and been on it for two weeks went doctors and he as took me back down to 20mg as he said 30mg was to much for me so now I’m waiting for the 10mg to come out my system so I’ll just be on 20mg if that makes sense
