Bethers, I'm glad to hear your medication is working for you. I had a very nasty experience with "Avanza Mirtazapine"... some horrible mental and physical side effects... I just quit them and threw them away!!!! Feel better, but still feeling a little depressed as the Valium meds I am also taking is a depressant. If I can't figure things out for myself, and become happy again, without the meds, I'll have to go to the doc's for a different prescription.
I'm sure you are probably already aware that Valium is a depressant and is quite addictive, Kitt?
Do you take any anti depressants along with this? also, it can become extremely addictive if taken for longer periods than 4 months. how many mg doses are you taking a day?
Everyone is different, and I've found discovering what caused my anxiety to come on, and my subconscious thought patterns, has really helped me, and I intend to improve my life and thoughts.. at the moment, I take valium too. but I'm hoping it's very temporary, and I only take 2.5 - 5 mg per day on average. I was at a party on saturday night, and everyone was having such a blast, and I couldn't even have a drink because of these stupid Valium pills!! Grr! I hate that this anxiety is taking over my life... I ended up leaving the party because I just couldn't get in the zone! :( :(
