Comment:
Took it for 4 months and have just recently stopped after gradually reducing dosage from a maximum of 40 mg.

I've had anxiety so awful I could barely leave the house, I've taken many other drugs and had this with the best result. Barely any side effects with great results - the worst side effect for me is I get hungry after taking it.
