Ironically, the very things that you are seeking to treat with this class of medication...are the things that are often increased upon start up.
Anxiety and/or depression are commonly exacerbated by an SSRI for the first few weeks, until your body adusts...and the s/e's level off.
However, if there is some good news to come out of this...I have heard that an initial bad reaction such as yours...can be indicative that the med will eventually be a good one for you!
...so try to hang in there! You have likely been through the toughest part, and things should start to improve for you soon.
Use you coping skills to get you through any more rough days, and have hope!
