    yes i thought so too arrrghhh these side effects are so annoying... hoping they will pass too think it takes about 11 days to get out of your system just makes you feel down been so trying to ignore them !!!
    hope you are ok after changing meds xx

    i was on ami for 9yrs, came off 7 months ago....first week off them i felt great, then it hit me, anxiety came back big style!
    Doc always said when you stop you can be worse than you were before going on them, and back at square one...but i was determined to stay off them...cheap nasty drug....
    i went to docs, and they said they are out of your system after few days...but after 9yrs on them, i said i didnt believe that! and surely will take time for my brain to sort itself out after 9yrs of controlled drug in there....
    Its not been easy, but im glad to be off them, im finally awake again!! felt drugged all the time on them..... i have had bad anx, but meds only mask, they dont cure, so you have to deal with whatever you were like before taking them anyway....
