    I have been taking this medication for many years and have had the dosage increased but it is no longer working; I am now having anxiety episodes as well.

    This medicine works great for me...however, is it unethical if your doctor's office refuses to refill it simply because you owe a small bill? I am now currently suffering from symptoms related to having to stop this drug, and it is interfering drastically with my life! Any advice?

    I used to think about suicide several times daily. I believe this, and stopping use of alcohol, has had a tremendous effect on my mental health.

    Although this medication has been effective for my anxiety, it seems to have lost its benefit in treating my depression, either that or the depression is worse.
