25 mg is a good starting dose for anxiety.If your symptoms do not improve in a period of two to four weeks then the dose can be increased gradually to 50 mg and then 75 mg after another two to four weeks.Let me know if you have more questions.Please rate me by clicking on one of the rating options at your end.Kindest regards

Expert:  Dr. SH replied 1 year ago.
Yes you would have already started to have some side effects even after taking the first dose if you were to have them.if you have not experienced any side effects, then you will likely not experience any, not at least with this dose.
