Starting week 4 on 100

Posted , 4 users are following.

So done 5 weeks altogether but 50mg for 1 week and just starting my 4th week on 100mg today

I wake up with a little anxiety which comes and goes through the day and little shakes which also come and go through the day although i feel better then i did at the begining and can see a tiny light at the end of the tunnel.

When did everyone feel better on 100mg? Im on it for gad and keeping a daily mood diary i see my doctor again the end of the month who said if i still dont think its taking the edge off with higher it to 150mg

    Hi Kayleigh, good to hear you are starting to feel improvements. Remember, the initial stage of recovery is very uneven, meaning anxiety still comes in waves but should get better once the med is settled in your system. I am on 100mg and felt better at 8 week mark. Personally I think you are good at this dose. Give it another month. If after 8 weeks you feel you need more, then you can increase then. Take care, no HALTS! Xx.
