Had the same problem. I am on 20mg aday after 12 weeks. I am doing fine. I still get these thoughts during the day but I am able to blow them off after afew minutes. I am able to go on with my life. You have to live for today. If you think about dying tomorrow from a disease you will be killing today and you are alive today. I had cancer ( the word HAD ) is very important.
I am also getting other help. I lost 40 pounds during my anxiety attacks and now that I am feeling pretty good, I am also eating toooo good.
Best of luck

Hi Mystic, glad to hear that you made it through today. Your post sounds a tad bit better than yesterday's. I took a big step today and called a therapist. So far I have just been handling all of my issues alone with Lex and you guys. My doctor thinks that I could really benefit from someone to talk things out with. She also increased my dosage to 20mgs. I have been having a return of obsessive thoughts recently and they are becoming more frequent. I spent pretty much the whole day today obsessing about a disease I think I could have. I am a little frightened at the prospect of increasing my dose. I had some pretty rough anxiety when first beginning Lex and hope that it's not that bad this time around. I am also hoping that I can be free from these thoughts once again. The good news is that I am not depressed anymore, I have lost 14 pounds since my last doctor visit and my blood pressure was lower than it has ever been! So I feel pretty good about the future and am looking forward to conquering these obsessive thinking patterns. Wish me luck!
