  • Lots of bad side effects. Some cleared up after 1-2 weeks, others did not. Insomnia, headache and morning anxiety still bad after 7 weeks.

  • It seems there's a trade off with this, as my anxiety is gone, but I'm always tired and sweat a lot when I sleep. Ran out once and had trouble getting the prescription refilled, so was off it for 3-4 days....anxiety came back quickly.

  • Side effects may be worse than you anticipate. Takes long to become effective. Not being able to orgasm at 10mg but ok at lower dose 5 mg.

  • Miracle drug for my anxiety and depression. Struggle with weight gain and drowsiness. Sexual side effects improved after a few months but still cause some issues.
