New to the GAD world as of a few months ago and still waiting for my SSRI to give me the full kick(three weeks into Prozac). Just wondering a couple of things. Are you having success with treating your anxiety with an SSRI alone? How long did it take for your SSRI to alleviate your symptoms? Thanks for your time:)

Hello Coming Back

I take Valium and Trazadone with my Cymbalta.  I am weaning off the Valium but am a bit stuck at 6 mg per day right now.  I am starting to feel a bit of anxiety increasing but it could be the fear of not having the Valium.

Remember everyone is different and reacts to the medications in their own way.  I would love to take just one med.  I hope this is the answer for you.

Keep on posting and let us know how you are doing :)
