hello

hope you're doing well!

your past medical history and current complaints are related and pretty much predict you might be suffering anxiety. continue taking current medications. prescribing medicine ..continue to take it for 3 weeks and then stop. along with that I need to clear some more points ..as do you have stomach upset? gastric burning? bitter mouth taste? difficulty in swallowing? weight loss? best wishes.
