    Hi Vittal

    These meds take a long time to work and any change in dosage will invariably produce side effects, this is what you are experiencing now.These will pass once your body adjusts.To the change in dose.

    your blood pressure is high because of your heightened anxiety but also needs to be monitored by your doctor.

    The anxiety will improve but it's a game of patience.

    Hi Vittal

    go and talk to your Neurologist because they should give you some reassurance and a clearer picture .all I can say is that your experience is similar to mine especially with the blood pressure but that has stabilised now because my anxiety and depression have settled.

    always here for you for support and a chat.Hope you get some answers from the specialist xx

    Hi Vittal I'm from Australia and suffered anxiety for many years but currently stable and leading a normal life.

    You may suffer side effects from upping the dose but these will pass in time. Withdrawing from tobacco I believe is also difficult so speak to your doctor about doing this properly.

    Hope you are feeling better.

    Yes I am a woman ,Mum to two adult children and a very supportive husband so I am a very fortunate person. Do you have family you can talk to? This would be helpful to you if you have someone who can help you. If not you can talk here. 

    I am pleased you went to the doctor and have the right medication.Just keep taking this and very slowly you will recover it just takes a lot of time.
