I am have bad anxiety, panic attacks and depression and have tried 3 different SSRIs, all of which made me feel MORE anxious and crazy. My doctor suggested this med. Can anyone tell me the difference in the experience of taking this vs. an SSRI? I am hoping it has an immediate calming affect with no chance of making me feel manic, more anxious, scared or agitated like the SSRIs all tend to do. Any advice/shared experiences very much appreciated! Thank you!
