Started on 50 mg and had minimal side effects. Slept good, some diarrhea for about two days and better mood after a week but still some anxiety and agoraphobia. My doctor raised the dosage to 100 mg and that's what it all started. Severe insomnia and frequent diarrhea at least 3 times or more per day. Other than that my mood is even better and I definitely feel it working for anxiety but just wonder is I should stick it out with the diarrhea or go on something else? I've been on the 100 mg for about 17 days. Will the diarrhea go away? Please someone help. I'm getting ready to go back to work in a few days and can't be running back and forward to bathroom. Did anyone had a diarrhea for longer than 2 weeks or should I just give up on this medicine?
