      I own my own business and cut hair so it's def been a struggle and I get i get overwhelmed so it is definantly becoming debilitating. I'm having all sort of weird stuff going on physically with my anxiety even before I started the meds. It's frustrating and I'm a hypochondriac so I keep thinking something is wrong with my brain.

    Hi unfortunatly side effects are more at the begining of taking the meds and gradularly your body gets used to them and hopefully will start working on your anxiety issues, what ever you do dont stop taking your meds as you will only have to start them again, try and get rest for the next few days so you dont get to worried about anything outside your home. I cant say why meds give you side effects but they do and they are horrible and the worse thing is when you have to come off them you get other side effects too. I wish you luck
