Good Evening...
 
How long after taking your A/D did you feel like yourself again?? The point where you had no more fears to do things...no more anxiety.....

Never did and gave it a full 8 weeks.  AD's do not agree with me for some reason.  I remember having maybe 4 good days in that time frame.  I hope they start working for you soon.  I know a lot of people that have good results, I was just not one of them.  I am on Buspar, which does not work for alot of people, but did work for me.

Good luck and don't give up too soon.  My co-worker told me with her it seemed like it took forever, but the day it kicked in for her, all was good.

Sunshine,  You still have to deal with negative thinking so learn to soothe yourself, comfort and love who you are unconditionally.  The meds will do their part but you must do yours as well.

Boon gave you some excellent advice.  I hope everyday finds you feeling a little bit better.  Meds are not a magic wand, they help you but you have to do the other things necessary for your well being; like taking care of yourself, stop beating yourself up, cultivating new attitudes, etc.

Have a great week-end Sunshine.
