Yes, anxiety: This is a symptom of anxiety. You are not taking anything for generalized anxiety disorder. Neither Lamictal nor zoloft (sertraline) works well for gad. Ask your doctor for Buspirone and or referral to a cognitive behavioral therapist. Jag är svensk-amerikansk lekar- psykiater. Jag önskar att du har god hälsa och lycke.
