Hi

I need some advice. I have been on flu for over 7 weeks. I have had awful side effects but also some evidence it is working . My obsessive thoughts are less but I have continual low level anxiety for no reason. I just wants to know if anyone feels carrying on for a few more weeks is worth while on 20 mg

i am at my wits end with the roller coaster ride of these tablets.

Thanks

    Hi thanks for your reply.  The doctor suggested 40 mg but I am scared it will increase my anxiety.  I thought I would stick at 20mgs for 12 weeks

    But unsure

    thanks
