    Hi Sasha

    Unfortunately, side effects could last for a bit longer, even few weeks.. It is not easy to take this medication but it will help.. Just try to go day by day, it will get easier. I had all possible side effects and was struggling but it was getting slowly better. Now i am on 21 week and i can say there is light at the end of this tunnel 😃 Please keep going, you will get better
