... before I started taking it. I am having a lot of the side effects... headaches, upset stomach, dizziness, feeling light headed, tired feeling but also not being able to sleep at night. I'm taking 5 mg in the morning and I feel pretty good throughout the day after I've taken it and into the night. But then I'm not sleeping well at night, and I wake up in a full panic, heart beating really fast and not wanting to get out of bed. Is this normal? I am taking it for anxiety but I almost feel an increased sense of anxiety. My doctor thought maybe I should come off of it but I don't want to give up. From what I read everyone says it will get better. Has anyone else experienced this? I am seeing a specialist later this week so hopefully she can be more help.
