    I had similar, been on 10mg for a month and have had several side effects, yet I had none when I took the same tablets last year! I think the effects are decreasing slowly so stick with it.

    Yes it's some of the side effects - it'll pass in time.  I had lots of dizziness when I first took these meds, to the point of feeling quite nauseous.  It disappeared eventually, but annoying when I had it.

      Yes the nausea was horrible and it dragged on the longest over all the other symptoms.  Although not nice and very annoying, I found the anxiety and sleeplessness were worse.  All wore off eventually though, but yes, makes you feel quite lousy.
