Doc gave me Pexeva

Finally went to the doctors for my panic attacks. He wants me to take 10mg of Pexeva daily for 30 days and then see how i'm doing. But to be honest, I'm a bit scared to try them becouse of what I have read. Mostly about people having increased anxiety for the first two-three weeks.

Feedback from anyone taking the same or similiar meds would be appreciated. How did they work for you? Was the initial increased anxiety bad?

My doctor also just gave me these. I haven't started taking them but plan to in a couple days. I hope we can get some feedback.

Re: Doc gave me Pexeva

Oh okay, I actually did try Paxil a long time ago. It caused the side effects that all the other SSRI'S does. I did like how I didn't worry about stuff so much though. LOL my hubby said I didn't have any reaction to things good or bad.
