    You have not been taking it very long. Takes about 4 to 6 weeks for full effect I believe..have you tried taking you pill earlier? I take mine at at 8pm and go to bed around 12.00

    I advise to go back and see your doctor or psychiatrist to see if they can fond another one as it sounds like it might not be the one for you tell him about your panic attacks and write everything down so that its easy to explain and ypur symptoms hope this helps

    I have not had that my self. But I am only on 15mg for anxiety and Panick. It makes me very very tired. Not wanting to do much. Wouldn't have the energy to get aggressive. Or even answer back
