    I know the morning anxiety is always the last to go. I wome up at 5:30 too and it's so hard to get up. I lay in bed till 7 when my son has to get up. Hang in there.

    HI I am on 10mg , 2 weeks still have anxiety, I was wondering the same, wake up, get a cup of tea, take it back upstairs for a hour, internal treamberling, on and off like a buzzing feeling, it's the feeling alone and wondering if you are going to cope with the day, what mg are you on, and how long have you been on it, thanks
