I for almost two years was not able to take medicine!!! But I have successfully been on medicine now for almost a month! And boy am i glad i am! It has helped almost 50 % more with my anxiety and ocd. I was afraid of everything..I was specailly afraid to take medicine..I didnt want it to make me feel weird or high or anything like that but i pushed through and am so happy i did!!! I AM SO PROUD!
