Hi! I am new to your forum, looking for a bit of a second opinion to my problem. I am almost 25, and a couple of months back I suffered a pretty bad anxiety attack. Since then, I have been taking Ativan and it seems to work to an extent - I get rushes of nervousness and anxiety especially at nighttime, and I'm at my wits end to say the least. My doctor has prescribed Cipralex, saying it has very few side effects. I am not good with meds, I can't even take Nytol without buzzing out (don't laugh!) - I am perfectly healthy otherwise, am not OCD or have any social phobias. Has anyone taken Cipralex, if so, what did you think?
