I have GAD and it is under control. I have had GAD for many years, but with meds, I am doing pretty good. I still get days where my anxiety goes up, but I know to expect that. I was on Zoloft for 12 years and then it "pooped out". I had a major relapse of the GAD when zoloft quit doing the job. I was put on Paxil in its place and it is doing good for me. I'm also on buspar. Besides the meds, I was helped by the book "Hope and Help for your Nerves" by Dr. Claire Weekes AND by taking Taurine Every day!
I hope you feel better soon!
