    Thanks. I know I feel so tired on them aswell. I feel a bit better but still get really bad nights at times. I was on them a few years and I went off them completely without tapering which was really stupid of me, I had a lot of mood swings but the depression didn't really come back from them just like I had PMS all the time lol. How are you now?

      Today was okay but when I finished work my mood has been terrible i do notice a difference on the tabs  but I also feel totally diffrent from what I would feel normally like I feel so tired all the time so hard to get anything done and kind of confused at times hoping this all goes away too ! 

      When is it you take flauxetine ? I take mine at night, have no problem with sleep or that maybe you could give that a try x
