First of all , 12.5 is a small dose & it's possible that it didn't work because you didn't take appropriate dose . Secondly any psychiatric medicine takes 4-6 weeks to start showing full effects and in your case you stopped after 8 weeks . You can take depsonil however you need to work on your anxiety because that's the root cause of this. Restart medicine & also consider cbt sessions which will help you coping with negative thoughts
