I am so sorry to read of your increased anxiety and hope that you and your Dr. can make a decision on whether or not the med is helping you any?
I know how nasty it can be to start a new medication only to spend 6-8 weeks on it without any improvement. There are many medications out there for you to try so please do not despair.
I have been juggling meds for many years................when I finally get a good one I pray that it will work for a long time.
