Well so far I feel Great! I can be around people and large crowds without going into panic mode. But I am hearing some similar things about this pill from different people I speak too.

Lots of dizziness, numbness of my face, confusion, and spaciness. It wasn't fun, especially when I was pregnant. My doctor put me on Zoloft which was very easy to come off.

Comment:
I was put on this medication at 20 years of age. I was having frequent panic attacks and anxiety. I have been taking it for exactly 3 years and it has been very effective. Sexual arousal was difficult after I started taking the medication. It is important not to immediately stop taking the medication. I had a lapse in my persecriptions for 3 days and the withdrawl side-effects required me to stay ... Show Full Comment
