I was diagnosed with GAD in April 2017. My doc has had me on many meds but we cant seem to find one that works... I have read many good things about Cipralex and am hopeful. I've been on 5 mg for 4 days and I feel like my anxiety increases a little each day. I was told that it may get worse before it gets better. I seem to be losing my appetite too... I'm scared I wont eat. Should I talk to my doc about increasing my dose to 10 mg sooner rather than later? How long is this "side effect stage" going to last?
