      Hi. I hope will work for me aswell.Better later than never.I should wait one more week,the problem is that I have no hope.I tried very hard to stay on them because I had horrible side effects and if I try a different med I have to go through the side effects again...and wait  4 weeks again...

    Hi Cristina,

    Yep had this and other things going on with breathing, panic attacks etc. Worried too much initially about too much! Now don't worry, but I am 4 months in, HANG IN THERE! It will be worth it!

    Regards,

    David

    Hi,

    I have not read of a discussion asking this question yet? However, I am sure someone out there will read and get back to you, it'll be intersting to know either way! So, come on you forum-ers! Get replying!

    It is always best to try and eat something meal wise or nibble on something on a regular basis if you can irrespective of medication. Pleaes try.

    Regards,

    David
