Rather than go in with a short list of suggestions from the Internet, why not go in, express your concerns can allow the Dr to decide what's best for you. This will also enhance the trust between the two of you, knowing you're putting all your trust in her knowledge, rather then the experiences of strangers, who cannot have the same reactions to med like this as you will.
How long have you been on it? Many of the side effects go away and it works better after about 4-6 weeks. You can't just stop therapy if you're not going to give medications a chance to work. There are other meds but most cause the same side effects at at first. It sounds like you're anxiety isn't going to let you have medical therapy. Therapy is good but many still need a small dose of something. Maybe buspar would help and not cause problems. It helps about 50% of people but you have to take it every day, its not like a benzo.
