I was glad to read your review as I am just about to start these and I'm nervous as I have been given 4 other tablets which have not helped and actually made my symptoms worse. I am at my wits end and totally despairing from this crippling anxiety. It's ruining my relationship & effecting my job. I cannot seem to get a grip on it. I am in constant fear of another attack and literally just want to hide away from myself if that makes sense. The smallest tasks are now huge. I am in sales & would usually be very confident however I am not barely able to sit still in a meeting now and I have taken too much time off while testing medication. Its been getting worse and I'm trying desperately to find a solution. Xanax is my only saving grace but I'm nearly finished these and on them far too long. My doctor has proved useless in this matter and I'm now seeing a psychiatrist who I hope will be the answer as I'm not sure how much more I can take. Can I ask how long it was before you felt any relief from these? I should mention my sleep is also gone and I'm lucky if I get 1 or 2 hours. I realize it's all connected.
Sorry you are experiencing this. I struggle the exact same way... I am on the generic and it’s fantastic for me took 3-4 weeks to really notice fully. But it helped. Not completely, but has allowed me to make it through the days and be more normal and like my old anxiety free or anxiety managed self.
