Could be normal: Anxiety that you're describing sounds minimal. However if you think your anxiety is out of proportion with any stress in your environment call your doctor and explain. Remember that the medication is not intended to completely knocked out in anxiety all the time-that is just not possible nor would you want your emotions so blunted.
