    If you experience tons of side effects with SSRIs/SNRIs/and Benzos this might be the drug for you. Been on it off and on for 2-3 years. First off it will take at least a month to fully start working as it needs to build up in your system similar to Klonopin. Also it is usually taken 2-3 times a day.

    I have had problems with aniexty for several years. Just last month I addressed this issue as I was having night terror dreams. I had horrible chest heaviness and struggled with everything that would come my way. After 2 weeks I am completely back to my original self. I have huge amounts of energy, no PTSD and I am getting better every day.

    First, most of my life I've had trouble with anxiety, especially social anxiety, but have tried very few medications for it. My anxiety is worse than ever now, I think because I have cancer and am in a terrible predicament because I don't trust or want traditional treatments/medications, yet I don't know what the cancer will do next. I have more than one type of cancer, at least one of ... Show Full Comment
