    I'm on week 5 of 20 mg and it feels really weird. Been extremely panicky lately. I was to where I would have some good days and then some bad ones but they pretty much been all bad lately. Mornings are especially rough. What symptoms are you having? Do you feel worse now than before starting? Did they give you any other pills to get through the beginning?

      No just the 20 mg and I would say panicky wise i'm way worse than I was ! I've been trying to go for a jog when I start feeling bad because I read exercise can help but nothing is helping !

    I totally understand this, do you take your meds at night? sometimes its best to do this because your sleeping off the side effects, i advise maybe visiting your GP and asking for propananlol to help with your anxiety, soon the side effects will pass and within up to 6 weeks the medication will be better, however, if not, change your meds
