Only used for 3 weeks - taper needed?
I've been on this stuff for three weeks and all it did was increase my anxiety (which honestly wasn't even that bad). I started off on 10mg for two weeks, then 15 for one week, then 20mg for two days and today decided I'd had enough. A few days after I started, and again for a few days after I increased the dose each time, my anxiety would increase, and I had the worst bout of anxiety of my entire life today two days after the 20mg, so I want to stop.
Since I've only been on it for 3 weeks on such a low dose, what kind of tapering do you guys recommend?
Thanks so much!
