I recently was preacribed .5mg er daily to combat my anxiety. I never sought treatment for it before but i have to say thank the lord i did. This drug has worked wonders for me. My anxiety is gone, im getting sleep at night, and put my weight back on. Why the bad rap for this drug? Its my first personal experience and i love it. However, since it works for me, when i got from seeing my gp to a psychiatrist do i need to tell him it works for me? I dont want to be viewed a drug seekee.
