I am totally disgusted with the medical profession. I was not smart like some of you all and cold turkey quit taking my medication. I have been taking 40mg for 3 months only and thought that there was no way withdrawals would be so bad. Atleast I see that weening off of it causes withdrawal too. I was prescribed this medication for mild anxiety. I wanted to stop because of the sexual side effects and I became concerned that I was feeling quite robotic and not feeling the good things with the intensity that I desired. After a week and a half of not taking the medicine I have been sick to my stomach, dizzy, extremely sleepy and cranky. At first I attributed these symptoms to my period, even though this was not normal to me and I began to search the web. Why would they allow a drug to be on the market that caused such side effects of withdrawal even if you taper off as suggested. I hope and pray that sine I was only on the medication for a short while that my symtpoms will subside and I can return to my normal life. I will never turn to medicaiton again for my anxiety problems.
