    Hi Tammy I am on 20mg cit for 6 weeks now and I have experienced that burning sensation on my hands and feet on week 2 and it did go away so just hang in there it will get better

    Good Luck!

    I am on day 7 and had this start around day 3 also. I even made a post here on day 4 about it all.

    Its less now than it was! Hang in there.

    I had exactly the same thing. It was pretty scary.

    Get yourself to the doctor.

    It's nothing to worry about - just a really unpleasant side effect.

    I was given a low dose of diazepam it really really helped me get through it. And at such a low dose for such a short time its perfectly safe
