    Sorry to hear that, anxiety could be overwhelming at certain times. Just hang in there..

    Why didn't you consult your doctor? a year is a long time to wait.

    After a year on the drug and with no clinical benefit you must consult your doctor and probably switch to another class gradually. Your doctor should have ruled out heart problems and certain endocrine disorders, if not, ask for for it.

    Get this under control asap. You will eventually feal better once you found the right combination

    Maybe a change of medication is needed. Have you tried anything else?

    Have you considered therapy as an option? It can and often is just as or more effective than medication, certainly in the longer term?

    What are you anxious about? Can you pinpoint this? Have you seen a doctor to make sure it's nothiing physical?  Sometimes medicine makes things worse.  Your body will let you know that.
