    Hey, I've only been taking it for five weeks. 2 weeks at 50mg and then 3 weeks at 100mg. I had a good week at week 3, then things have gone down hill a bit. I've been told to hang on in there as it takes 8 weeks's very frustrating. What dose are you on? You may need to up your dose.

    Hope you feel better soon.

    This did happens to me too at around week 7, it's just a blip, can last a week, but if after 2 weeks no change go and see GP to up the dose perhaps.

      I think it is a side effect. All last week my appetite got better and then this weekend it was gone completely. Its amazing what your nerves can do to your stomach.
