    Despite the impression support groups can give, most people have none to mild side-effects when starting on ADs. Also, not all side-effects are necessarily down to the med. An anxious mind is very capable of generating our worst nightmare if given half a chance. While side-effects may sometimes be unpleasant they don't usually cause physical harm.

    What dose has your GP prescribed to start?

    I found Escitalopram to be one of the gentler ADs.
    Been on it at 10mg for years and it works well.
