Hi just that really- been to doc today and been prescribed this for anxiety disorder. Tried prozac and didn't agree nor did beta blockers, any tips/ advice? Scared of potential side effects but the Diazapam is not enough.
Yes, for years. I was prescribed it for depression, primarily, but was told that it's good for anxiety disorders too. No side effects apart from a very dry mouth but I believe that's common with most antidepressants. Good luck
It didn't make me drowsy but the side affects I had/have are: loss of appetite and weight loss (lost 2 stone fairly quickly but I was overweight so wasn't a problem and that side affect has stopped now) jaw clenching at night, and strange dreams.
I've taken it twice. First time was fine apart from feeling overheated and sweating. Second time was awful... Fatigue, nausea, sweating, shaking and chills like I had flu. Worked for the depression and anxiety and nerve pain but no use as I couldn't get off the sofa! I think it's really hard to predict how you'll react as everyone is so different.
I am on day 7 with cymbalta now for the 3. time in my life. Started with 30 mg for 2 days, then 60 mg for 3 days and now 90 mg for 2 days so far. Been increasing fast as changing meds from Sertraline and am in hospital...
