I have not taken this medication I am sure as your post gets noticed that you will get lots more feed back from those that have but was wondering if these meds are suiting you ?

I would go back and have a word with my Doctor tell them how bad I am feeling and maybe discuss other meds if needed as some side effects can be as you describe

Have you looked into any kind of therapy for your anxiety this is another option you could look at to help
