    I have just taken my 2nd tablet and I feel sick and dizzy and that I feel like I'm dying. I think this medication had aweful side effects but lot people say it does work. So it is hard. How much do you take? Maybe less the dosage.

    I always panic to girls when starting a new medication. I take it then instantly wish I hadn't and so the panic begins and I have to talk myself down.

    The majority of people have side effects when starting something new so it's worth getting a little mantra going "it's just the meds getting into my system,I will be fine once they settle,give it time"!! 

    Everything you have described is nerves and panic related. Lots of us have been there,some of us are still there! Nobody enjoys taking tablets but anything related to mental health is so much more frightening. 

    Go in YouTube..find a decent guided meditation for anxiety and relaxation,,lay back and just let your mind rest a while...I'm sure you will find it beneficial as many of us do xxx
