    Certainly is my friend. Just try to remember you have had good days and possibly look into what triggers your anxiety. It also depends on how long you have been on the antidepresents. If it's a month or so it's like a roller coaster. Keep using this forum on your bad days as it helps to let how you feel out I the open.

    I'm on prozac and having a major setback right now. I've been on for almost 11 weeks. Last week and the week before were pretty decent and then all of a sudden it started creeping back in until it was full blown again. If you only been on a month it can definitely happen. I was all over the place the first month, it actually got worse at first.

    of course setbacks will happen. ..Aside from the medicine are you making any other changes in your lifestyle? Therapy? Learning self calming skills?

    always it's normal to have setbacks. We would not be human otherwise.

    Hope you feel better soon.
