    when started on 10mg last Oct I was feeling better by Christmas and probably 100% by March. Had a blip in May but bounced back, then felt horrible mid July. Finally by this Oct I couldn't take it anymore and went up to 20mg. I was getting headaches and mild neck aches as well as increased anxiety. I still have headaches and heaviness and a mild burning sensation in my neck and arms at times. Not sure what the eye thing is your referring to. I'm hoping I follow the same pattern and will be doing better soon. I feell better at night, even optimistic... until morning. Than I feel bad again and try to get thru the day.

    all this is normal while your body adjusts to the cit . i had the eye floaters headaches tingling but the worse for me was the nausea . U will gradually get better it takes a good 3 months to see a good improvement u still get blip days or week . i am 8 months in and have just had a week long blip u can cope with them its nothing like the initial feelings . just take each day as it comes think positive and it will go
