I am glad you have given yourself permission to go back on medication. I agree looking at a different med may be a sound idea for you so do discuss the choices with your physician and ask your physician to go over the side effects with you before you start on a new med.
There were some meds that I just refused to take because of the side effects.
So I went to the doc, he has prescribed me Escitaelopram which is supposed to have alot less side effects but we will see. He is going to ring me next week to see how i am getting on which is a new one to me.
He said if i have problems on it again he would prescribe me something (cant remember name bit its benzo-something) but your only supposed to take it for 8 weeks.
So im giving Escitaelopram a try doctor seeemed very hopeful about it even saying he believed my anxiety would n't get worst within the first 2weeks of taking it. Im abit less hopeful but time will tell
