Cibralex Side Effect Issues

Posted , 2 users are following.

HI, I'm a 20 year old female and I have just recently started taking Cibralex and I have been having quite a rough time of it. Especially in the mornings. I'm only on 5mg at the moment and I'm not handling even that well and I'm supposed to up my dose to 10mg but I'm nervous that my symptoms will get worse. I currently wake up and automatically start panicing and trembling and feeling really hot. Last night it even woke me up at like 2am because I was panicking so bad. My entire chest literally felt like it was on fire. And I'm not booked in to see my dr. until the 2nd of Aug and I can't even talk with him on the phone because he's gone on vacation until monday. This is really frustrating me and scaring me. Does anyone have any advice or experience they can share? Are these symptoms normal? Like it's almost like the drug has made me more stressed then I already was.

      Thank you for your feedback. I was supposed to up my dose to 10mg but I didn't because of all the bad side effects I've been having. I'm waiting until I can get in to see my doctor which will hopefully be soon. The symptoms have seemed to have calmed down a little bit during the day but mornings are still the worst. I'm nervous that if I start taking the 10mg that it will all get worse again. What do you think?
