... I had been experiencing bad side effects - terrible stomach problems, dizziness, insomnia, nervousness, jitters, no emotion, everything this drug is not supposed to do to you it did to me. I just did not feel right nor did I like what it was doing to me. My doctor and therapist both endorsed stopping it without tapering off. I threw my pills out last night and will never take this medicine again. I have two questions, what might I expect to feel over the next couple of days and how long will it take for this horrible stuff to get out of my system? I have been suffering from mild anxiety and panic attacks for a few months and finally feel some clarity about the whole situation now that I've decided that this drug is not for me. I'm in talk therapy and have a mild sedative to help when I have a rough wave. Thanks for any advice
