Sorry for the title but it's just how I feel. I am just complaining. Two weeks and two days into 10 mg and I cannot stand the spacey detached feeling. I hate this so bad and I can keep telling myself it gets better but I just feel so damn hopeless then I'll never feel again. I feel like a zombie and I hate this.

    You need to give your medication time to work your side effects should reduce as you continue down the pathway.

    Awb

    I know exactly how you feel, the first two weeks for me were the worst of my life & im not exaggerating, Things will settle down & in the background the drugs will already be helping you , four months ago I would never have believed that I could ever feel as good as I do now ,

    It's not easy , remember you have an illness & like any other you need to take some pressure off yourself & give yourself time to recover.

    Good luck for the new year.

    Regards

    Tom

      Thank you Tom. I had no idea it was gonna be like this I had no idea I would feel so often on like myself. I had no idea and my vision would be all blurry. None of this was explained to me and I'm really struggling. I'm glad you made it through it and I'm hoping that things start to get better. I just feel it so unlike myself it is ridiculous

      No worries Awb

      This forum helped me loads so I'm happy to try & help others through it .

      When you say ' scared' it brings back bad memories as I basically said goodbye to my partner as I thought the former me had gone forever & I would have to get used of me being the way I felt then, I promise you it's not the case & you will return again stronger & better prepared for what life throws at you.

      Just keep believing ,

      Regards

      Tom

    I know exactly what you mean I'm 4 days off it now and I'm still feeling horrendous , you deserve a lot of credit for lasting over 2 weeks , I lasted 6 days and the thought of taking another one was unbearable.

    I feel you're pain

I hope it will be the same for you. hang in there as it takes time but it should get better.  The side effects are crap, but they do start to ease. Good luck and be strong.
