Fearful can anyone advice either coming off it or to persevere a little longer
Many antidepressants can make your symptoms worst before better. Try to hang in there for a couple of more weeks if you can. It can take 4-8 weeks for it to reach a therapeutic level. You should start to feel better soon. If it is intolerable you may ask your doctor for something to help you get through the start up period.
Hope you feel better soon :)
I'm on Buspar (Buspirone) for anxiety. It works great for me. It's for anxiety, not an antidepressant. I've been on a lot of different antidepressants over the years. Your body gets used to meds after awhile and they don't work any more.
Ask your doctor for something specifically for anxiety. I hope this helps you.
