    It will settle. If you increase again please only go up by 25mg. It softens the blow a little.

    And it does need time. This is a slow acting drug but it does work if you persevere.

    Are you drinking loads of water and cutting down on coffee?

    Good luck

I did tell doc 75mg, she said we dont do 75mg, (b***h) lol..its in mornings its worse, is it cos im thinking about it all the time, in the evenings when home from work, its eased off to a comforble state like nearly feel normal.. then same cylce again the next day, its like a roller coaster heh..

      You need to break a 50mg in half.

    Hi Kells.  Yes I constantly think it’s never gonna get better but we need to remember that’s our anxiety and depression talking it’s not the truth.   It sounds like your side effects are normal and the same as the rest of us, I’m not on 100 I’m on 50 but it’s still the same rubbish side effects.   They will settle in time.  X
