I have GAD and started Cipralex a month ago. I started to feel a little bit more energetic, feel less cold, better digestion but my main problem, anxiety, has been the same. I wanted to wean off of Lorazepam hoping I did not need it anymore after Cipralex. I had been taking Lorazepam 0.5mg (rarely 1mg) before I went to bed to sleep for two months. My DR did not prescribed it anymore. I stopped taking it last weekend. I got a major panic attack second night. I took 0.25mg last night and could hardly sleep and I feel more anxiety today. I have only 6 x 1mg pills left and dont know how to wean it off.
