I have had sereve GAD all my life. I never had any close friends and I never had a girlfriend. I'm going to college soon and I hope I feel happy and worry free for once in my life. Will it make me aggressive and confident in general and towards women? I would just like some feedback.

I am giving you a link to read about this drug. Please read carefully & if further questions, call your pharmacist or doctor...
