I went through the initial 6 weeks, and I've now been on the full dosage of the medicine for two weeks now. My anxiety has been REALLY bad. I can't sleep at night, and even very minor things will stress me out terribly. I have paranoia. I've even had some thoughts of suicide, although I'm NOT going to commit suicide. I have an appointment with my neurologist Novermber 12th. So I'm wondering if I should just wait it out in the hopes that the side effects will subside with the longer I'm on it or should I inform him now? It IS pretty unbearable now... And should I cut out every little thing that's stressing me out right now? I was suppose to have a friend come and visit me this weekend, but just having her come is stressing me out really bad. Even things that would normally be fun for me are big triggers for my anxiety. I normally do have some issues with anxiety, but this is just insane!

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
