Hi I been prescribed this medication as I have severe anxiety and panic attacks. which is mostly brought on through a phobia of being sick or getting sick.
I have finally plucked up the courage to go and even pick it up from the pharmacy only to get home and read the leaflet. The side effects are major and I am even more scared than I was before. Now sitting here thinking why oh why did I read this.
Before the GP gave thee to me I had asked her many questions she assured me I would be ok but according to this leaflet this is major and if it makes me sick thats an anxiety come on for me. I currently am having CBT only had a few sessions as my therapist seems to always be on holiday so not seen to much of a change just yet but he seems to think im making some progress. Due to this anxiety and fear I dont go out much I always was out and about doing things and a happy go lucky person with a job. This just came out of no where and now im not the same person that brings me down a lot.
Im wondering what side effects you have had with these pills and how long they last and more so did they work? Kind of freaking out now i want no side effects but I guess all meds come with them
Not going out and not being about to be social is effecting many relationships in my life and i am very aware of my thoughts and feelings.
Thank you all in advance any help advice and guidance is muchly appreciated and needed.
