    Hi , yes it is very normal. Your side effects and recovery will go up and down for quite long, thats your body balancing medications. You might get new side effects or even feel much worse than you felt before taking medications, thats why alot of peope giving up thinking they are getting worse, but they are not, thats how recovery goes.. You will have up and downs until your body adjusts. It took me 6 months, be patient, you will get there, trust me 😃
