I'm afraid to take any new medicine. However, I have walked around in a contatnt state of stress for probably the better of 40 years. I do have times when I am better ( or dealing with it better). This last year has topped it off. I can't deal with the anxiety any more. My Dr. perscribed Paxil. I have heard wonderful things and very bad things. I guess I should just try it. I hope my anxiety doesn't get worse because I am worring about it while I am taking it. Any suggestions or comments?
