Hi there, a belated reply I know, but have been reading a few of your posts about your medication. Just a question, have you looked at a website called Anxiety No More by Paul David ? Take a look, it's very helpful for anxiety and explains everything, he also has a facebook page. He's a genuine guy and understands anxiety. Has helped me a lot, although I am suffering with intrusive thoughts, not physical symptoms really. i came off fluoxetine and I do think med are not the answer to anxiety, but that's just my opinion. Hope you are feeling better.
