    I think everyone is different and suffers varying degrees of side effects! The benefits of this medicine far out weigh the side effects once you have a few weeks worth within your system. Don't let the thought of the side effects put you off, you should at least try the medicine. Good luck and let us know how you get on smile

    When I first started the treatment, the first 2 weeks were anxiety hell too. Later it disappeared and other side effects started emerging. But eventually, after 8 weeks, everything seems to get better. If you are not at work, please keep yourself distracted and start to go to work. It helps.

    You dont know until you try everyone is effected differently. insomnia didnt last long for me and as far as reduced sex drive goes im 6 months in and im the most horny iv ever been probably cos i have chilled the f*ck out and and alot more worry free lol. To begin with i found it hard to cum. It wasnt supprising finding out its used for premature ejaculation and allows you to go alot longer. If it interferes with your personal life there are alot of different drugs you can try if one does t agree with you.
