    Jane from all I have read, when you upped the dosage, you started over again. 

    I am in week 12 on 20 mg and the anxiety has gotten better. Previously I was on 5,10 and 15 for 12 weeks. I still don’t feel well but I can get dressed and go out. 

    I know you have young children which has to make it so difficult. Had the anxiety gotten bearable for you? Is that why you went to 30mg? Do you see a psych dr or a gp?

    My anxiety started getting  better in the 11 th week, but I had started taking a beta blocker, so I don’t know what helped time Or the B.B.  the anxiety is still there just to a lesser extent.  Can you sleep at night?  

    Write on this forum any time you need to. It helps to write how you feel.  Everyone reading here understands. They are either there or have been there.

    Hi Jane,

    ‘I know the anxiety is terrible. I hit the 6 week mark tomorrow. 42 days. I hope the next 42 show some improvement. I am on 20mgs and will stay there for another 6 weeks. I take .25 Klonipin a day and a beta blocker 10mgs. I also take Trazadone at night for sleep. Hope the 30mg helps you with anxiety.
