    Thanks gill. It is so hard because there is so many things I want to do but can,t. Mornings are the worst for me

    How long have you been on this med and how long before you saw results. I am also feeling very nausea and have lost my appetite which I presume is a side effect.

    well done Gill. What strength are you on. How long did it take for you to feel the benefits. I do feel a bit desperate sometimes and think they are never going to work but I must give it time.
