Hi again,

Today has been better than yesterday for sure. I felt great all morning, really wired though. I started feeling a bit of a headache this PM, kind of a burning type like a sinus headache almost. I popped a couple of Tylenol and it seems better now.

I can't say that I felt awful during the first couple of weeks, but certainly a bit different. The doc. told me that I should be feeling better after the first 2 weeks, which I think is true - but I know I still have a ways to go.

I have not tried any other drugs (long term) for this, so I really dont have anything to compare it to. I also have Lorazepam for occasional use, that stuff really seems to screw with me!

I know that I don't obsess about my health quite as much as I used to - but to be honest I still sometimes catch my self getting panic'd about having a brain tumor, even though this has been going on with me for almost 9 months now and if it was a brain tumor, I would most likely be dead or in bad shape. :)

> Hi Forbidden,
> I thought I'd check in and see how day 19 is treating you. I know exactly what you mean about feeling like it takes you a bit longer to process information. It could start creating problems for me at work if it lasts much longer.
> How were your fist few weeks on the drug? Mine were awful. I thought I was going crazy the second week...but that seems to have let up. Have you tried other drugs for anxiety? This is my first one for long term use. (I've taken Klonopin, Lorazempam and Xanax for short term use and the pdoc recently recommended Lex.)

I still feel some lightheadedness, but that was a big reason I started taking this. I do at times feel a bit out of it, as though it takes a bit longer for me to process information, you know what I mean?
