    I do hope you slowly tapered off that nasty drug which never should be available/prescribed as it causes so many other health problems and is total hell to come off! I suffered extreme nausea along with so many other awful withdrawal symptons for a very long time

    It really is very individual how yr body and mind will react but I suggest you go to a health food store or herbalist and see if they can suggest something natural to ease your nausea

    All the Best😊

    hey, I was on this medication for about a year and it did wonders for my anxiety and sleep. when I stopped though I simply just stopped as advised by my psych, I was very wary as I knew I was probably in for a rough ride with withdrawals but I must say I was very lucky and didnt experience anything negative. I hope the nausea settles for you soon. what mg did you take? x
