      Jane, try to stick with it. I know how bad those side effects are. I am going through the same Awful!

      I am so tempted to stop, but feel I must give it 12 weeks. 

      Wish I could help you. I do think a psych dr is better for these things.

    Jane, please continue to let me know how you are doing. I think we are close to the same place. I start week 6 on 20mg tomorrow. It’s 1 pm and  I have not had any anxiety today just depression and don’t feel well. I usually shake all day until about 8pm. Who knows what tomorrow will bring.

      Yes I do , Jane  I take .25 mg of Clonazppam up to 3 times a day. I can’t tell that it does too much to help. I took 1 Zanax which did help, but my doctor will not prescribe as they are addictive. 

      It’s hard to describe anxiety. I shake on the inside and outside, feel terrible physically with stomach issues. I get very weak and my legs feel like rubber, but I don’t get dizzy. 

      It’s strange how  the effects can vary for different people. 

      People talk about staying busy. I wish I could stay busy.  Every once in a while I can get out, but it’s an effort. 

      I must have read a 1000 posts on the net. It’s those many success stories that keep me going.  

      I know it’s tougher for you as you have children.  Talk to your doctor and ask if he/ she can give you anything for relief even for just a few hours.
