Posted , 4 users are following.

Ok today makes 2 weeks of upped dose from being on 25mg for 6 months to 50 mgs. The first week i experience alot if anxiety and then it went away and i had good days for like 3 days then back to being tired some anxiety and nervousness, headaches feeling a litle hot. Nothing to bad but i can tolerate. So my questions is im i supposed to feel like this? Will it get better? Somtimes i think maybe the increase is messing me up but 25mg just didnt work anymore. Please let me know thanks

    It's normal Sean. I know it sucks but it should level out soon. Hang in there!

      I'm in the same boat and playing the waiting game as well. It's really hard. I totally understand

    I've been told that everytime you up the dose you are basically starting over, so there will be 2 or more weeks of side effects. I'm in my third week of 100 and had to fast for an endoscope. I found out the hard way that if you don't eat the meds aren't absorbed very well. Horrible days.
