Is that possible?
I just started taking it for anxiety 5 days ago (have taken 5 doses) and I'm feeling much more "mellow". I noticed today that I just feel happier about life in general and less stressed. I'm "losing it" (yelling) hardly at all, whereas before I did a lot, especially w/ DD1....
And I used to constantly get all these worst-case-scenarios go through my head about me and the girls and would envision everything so graphically and would start crying, multiple times a day. Today I had 1 thought (first one in days) and I immediately brushed it off as "whatever, that's a ridiculous idea". Then I realized I did that and I wanted to cry tears of happiness! ;)
Seriously though, is a placebo effect, or is it possible that the meds are already working? My OB mentioned 2-4 weeks before it would kick in.... Part of me wonders if I blew it out of proportion in my head and I shouldn't be on strong meds... but then I feel like it's already helping and I'm so thankful that after years of dealing w/ anxiety, I finally spoke up and got help. I hope it's actually working!
