“It’s a vicious circle,” Dr. Miller says. “So the person starts taking the medication because they’re anxious. The medication, however, affects the brain by actually making you more anxious. So pretty soon, people feel like without this medication, ‘I’m anxious all the time.’ When in fact, what they’re experiencing is just withdrawal from the medication.”
Duh! And we as patients don’t know??
Sad. Patient experience is disregarded.
