My anxiety is over the top. I understand it can take a couple of weeks to settle down. I am only on 5mg and my doctor is considering increasing to 10mg. Please tell me it gets better. I really do not want to start over with a different SSRI but not sure that I can take another week of this. Any encouragement is most helpful. Going crazy! I take it in the morning and three hours later I am wound up like a top. I take Gabapentin at night to help with sleep.
