    hi bex, its soo weird that you posted this, i came on today to say pretty much the same thing!

    i got changed from 20mg to 40mg 13 days ago now an i feel awful, especially today...i woke up crying an havent really stopped since!!! plus i had a total breakdown at work last week in front of everyone, which hasnt helped matters!!

    i dunno if i can really reassure you that it will kick in soon cos it hasnt for me yet either, but i can definately say you arent alone..im feeling exactly the same!!!! think the only thing we can both do is wait an see..if it doesnt do something in the next week, then im going back to the docs, maybe you should do the same?

    Hi Birdybex and Rachel

    Things will improve. I've been on 40mgs for some weeks now (can't remember how many now).

    I found the first 3/4 weeks i felt numb and emotionless, then things improved. It will happen. You just have to be so patient which is damn difficult.

    I haven't posted for a while as i'm in not to good a place right now. Still, i hope each day will improve and one day it will.

    Best wishes to you both.

    xx

    Hi All.Nice to hear from you all.Hey Juppster and Meganpooch-Sorry to hear you not in good place at the mo.Sounds like me for the last couple of weeks but I am here and starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.We are all in this together and I think by now I realise that I will have up and down days.I know that if it was not for the Flu I would not be here so YOU all stick with it.As for knowing when you will feel better,I cannot answer that I am afraid but what I can tell you is that you WILL feel better and it wont take long,so hang in there and when you feel you have had enough come on this site and offload your thoughts.There is always someone reading and in the same boat as you.YOU WILL NEVER BE ALONE WITH THIS ILLNESS and \"Hey\" you may make some good friends along the road to our recovery.Good luck and keep posting.Love P xx smile

    Hi Birdybex and Pinky

    I was told by my doctor to stop taking Kalms as soon as i started on flu. Birdybex, i'd say definately speak to your doc about it. I'm sure the two don't mix.

    Hope you're both okay.

    How are you all feeling?

    I have also gone from 20mg to 40mg today and I am nervous to see what happens. Felt sick this morning but other than that no difference.

    I guess i will find out in 3 or 4 weeks!

    Keep smiling folks.
