Well i went to see the doctor yesterday. He said "hrmmm, what should i do with you? I'll be back". He grabbed a Physicians sample only box of Luvox
(100mg) which is made by Solvay Pharmaceuticals. He said take half a tablet, once a day, come back in a week. He said these are tablets to deal with
anxiety and they give you a little bit of a good feeling. Go get a blood test. He said the first seven days you might get a little quezy in the
stomach, maybe a little lightheaded, maybe the hands might shake just a little, and perhaps have a little bit of a dry mouth. And he said that he is
thinking he might get me to go to a psychiatrist/psychologist (i dont know which one he said), but he said see how you go this week, come back in one
week, and we will see how you are and what we're going to do with you.
SO i had the half tablet today on an empty stomach in the morning, before going to work. Caught the bus, had breakfast in the city (i wasn't hungry),
went to work I was feeling a little lightheaded, thoughout the day my stomach was a little queezy. Mentally?: Anxiety was a lot further away from me
today than it has been in a long long time. There were a couple times thoughout the day when i did feel a little anxious. But they were gone
relatively quick. I've been the happiest i've been in a while too. Today was just the starter. It's really shown me how bad my life was living with
this constant anxiety all the time.
anyways thi sis what the drug does:
