When I was on 10mg escitalopram I had tremor, slept badly and was kinda on edge. I was also really sensitive to stimulants like coffee. Now I’m on 5mg escitalopram and feel so much better, tremor is almost gone, sleep well and I am almost anxiety free, wbu?
I take L-theanine supplements and I think they keep me calm. I used to take Ativan and Klonopin and they were calming.
Benzo of course have calming effects, but they can not be used everyday
I took benzodiazepines every day when I was on them.
It depends on the SSRI and how it effects you. I’ve had them that make me sedated and had them that make me manic. Right now I’m taking an SNRI and it’s middle of the road.
When i upped my sertraline it helped anxiety.
I’ve been on them for some time though.
I dont have anxiety and dont use ssri
When doc prescribed that for me
It made me depressed i didnt like it
