Sounds like there could be something else going on. Best thing to do is Call Your Doctor Right Away.


Anxiety is exaggerated for the first few weeks of treatment..it should get better,if not got bk to your docs.I have had mine increased three times,not nice getting used to new dose. Hope you feel better soon.
