I have extreme anxiety, agitation, panic attacks and get very mean to my loved ones etc... I know many will relate (I hope) but my fear is starting this med my psych told me it MAY increase anxiety... diarrhea while awful would be a cakewalk next to my attacks. Has anyone experienced this at startup? I have never before taken an anti-depressant, only Zoloft for 1 day and I nearly had to be hospitalized due to my anxiety increasing 100 times over.
