I just started taking mine 5 days ago for my anxiety. I started 5mg 2x a day morning and night. It seems to make me drowsy and anxious, so I spoke with my psych and she told me to take 1 pill a day for a week, then increase to 2. I am prob just more sensitive cause I know other people take larger doses without any side effects. Always take it the same way everyday (with or w/out food) so it goes into your system the same. I know it can take a couple weeks for your body to get used to it and for it to work. It doesn't work like a benzo, it works like an antidepressant. It has not taken effect for me yet, but I am going to stick to it and hope it helps me. Hang in there. I know it's frustrating!
