Is it bad to take concor 5 mg everyday? Its really helping me with my anxiety attacks. But im scared of the side effects...

My Opinion: I can't prescribe, so this might seem biased. Anxiety is 'off-label' for this drug. That's not unusual, but I believe that side effects are an avoidable worry. A CBT or other good psychotherapist can often teach skills to help you do better throughout life. A lifetime of learning experiences seems like a winner compared to a lifetime of medication. Some meds may be helpful in combo. Good luck. ...Read more
