I'm really torn about this. My body is very sensitive to drugs. It couldn't handle SSRI's at all and Clonazepam was the only one it responded to with minimal side effects back in 2002. I just got a new doctor and she's gently suggesting this drug. She said it doesn't work for most people, but when it does work it REALLY works. What confuses me is that I was diagnosed with panic disorder & agoraphobia. GAD was a theory years ago...

The clincher is my disorder stems from the fear of the symptoms and it sounds like this drug emphasizes those symptoms (dizziness, nausea, not thinking straight...). I guess there's no harm in trying, right? I'm currently on Clonazpam (1 mg/day).
