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.
