    Hi, it should settle but if you've been experiencing those effects when on 20mg then you need to speak to your GP as after 15 weeks you dhould have stabilised.

      After 8 weeks I was back to me I then had a baby and when she was 6 weeks I felt post natal depression creeping in (had it before) so he upped me to 40mg and after two days my anxiety shot through the roof, dizzy, sweats. Its like my start up again but a bit worse

    Hi it sounds like the drug is not suiting you try reducing it to see if things improve do you really need a drug can you try a herbal remedy from health food shop obviously you need to follow GP'S advice to certain extent mine was useless and really messed up telling me to double the dose when told him it wasn't suiting me he told me to double it.
