Had all of these side effects. Was taking off label for anxiety. Anxiety was initially better, but after about 2-3 months anxiety returned much worse. I am now trying to get off of this medication, however you must taper as you may have seizures if abruptly stopped. You also have a withdrawal syndrome with all of the above mental symptoms, however they are twice as bad as they were when you were taking the medication. Avoid if you can! Try St. John’s Wort - I’m taking that now and the anxiety/depression has lifted almost completely.

As with any medical decision, be sure to work with your doctor to ensure the best choices are made for your condition.

* About FAERS: The FDA Adverse Event Reporting System (FAERS) is used by FDA for activities such as looking for new safety concerns that might be related to a marketed product, evaluating a manufacturer's compliance to reporting regulations and responding to outside requests for information. Reporting of adverse events is a voluntary process, and not every report is sent to FDA and entered into FAERS. The FAERS database may contain duplicate reports, the report quality is variable, and many factors may influence reporting (e.g., media attention, length of time a drug is marketed, market share). For these reasons, FAERS case reports cannot be used to calculate incidence or estimates of risk for a particular product or compare risks between products.
