    Hi Craig,

    I felt 'a bit strange' when I first went on them, too - a kind of slightly out-of-body feeling, but not quite? And a bit floaty all the time. It IS hard to explain. But yes - it passed for me, I think it's a normal thing to happen at first. It should pass soon - how long have you been on them now?

    Hi. Yes, I had an awful time as I got used to the tablets. I was prescribed them for anxiety and the irony is that my anxiety got worse. so bad, in fact, that I had to be prescribed diazapam. I was getting this awful cold feeling down my arms and in my chest - I was convinced I was having a heart attack - you can just imagine what that did for my anxiety! However, after just over 2 weeks the feelings went away and I am now at the beginning of my 4th week and am up and about and nearly back to normal. I also lost a lot of weight because I simply couldn't stomach any food at all - pleased to report that appetite is back with a vencance now!! I think it is a case of things getting worse before they get better, it certainly was for me but I am glad I stuck with it.
