It very well can. There are many drugs out there with dual purposes. If this works for you then your are right on the money. But in 14 days the doctor feels that this is the drug and feels you can do better. He can increase the strength or he can give you another drug.
I wish you the best
As far as anxiety goes. Antidepressants never worked for me, they actually made my anxiety worse. I would personally try a benzodiazepine. I take Xanax and it works great. It gets a bad rep from all the addicts and the people that know very little about addiction. If your antidepressant doesn't help with your anxiety give a Benzodiazepine a shot. Hope this helps. Good Luck!
