    Now I understand the reasoning.
    When are you taking yours?
    I found taking it with breakfast works best for me.

    5mg is enough for me.

    I think that these jitters are psychological. Don't over-analyse what you think is "going on". Walking is a good stress-reliever and will burn off any excess adrenaline from your anxiety.

    That's kind of you to say that, Phill. Advice is only any good if it helps a little bit though so I hope things have been a bit more manageable for you today, John.

    I take mine after breakfast too.

    Have been feeling pretty rough the last couple of days. Sleepy with headaches and actually fearful like something bad is going to happen.
    Hope this is just the other stuff leaving my body and it resolves itself. Time will tell.

    It's just anxiety symptoms, John. Try not to work out what's "happening" re the meds. Keep busy and limit the monitoring if you can.

    Thanks pulisa

    Had to take some clonazepam last night as I felt too activated. A lot of teeth grinding and anxiety. Think I better start a cbt course before this gets the better of me.

    Found my old Dialectic Behaviour Therapy Skills Workbook from ten years ago.

    Quite a few of my anxieties from back then no longer trouble me, I seem to have developed NEW anxieties. How weird!

    Unfortunately that's the nature of the beast.
