Hi there, I'm new to the site so thought I would share my experience. I have suffered with Generalized Anxiety for about seven years now, my symptoms seemed to come from nowhere while on holiday. I had what I now to know to be a panick attak while in my hotel room. For the next three days I was unable to leave the hotel. For the next six months I felt totally out of controll and feared that I was going insane. I had horrible thoughts and constant fear of everything. I tried to cope with this on my own but failed miserably. In the end my GP prescribed Paroxatine 20mg. I remained on this for years finally tapering of them the Christmas past. I did a great job coming of the paroxatine but sadly all my symptoms returned and for 5and a half weeks I have been back on the paroxatine and am waiting for the full effects to start. Anxiety is a terrible burden but it's a comfort to know I'm not alone. Xx
