You began taking the medication to calm your nerves, reduce your anxiety and to stop panic attacks. The medication came highly recommended by your Doctor, just as it has to thousands upon thousands of other men and women throughout the world. After some time your body began to become tolerant to the medication, requiring more and more of the drug to achieve the desired effects.
