    It was dreadful for me days 2, 3, and 4. Then it started getting better apart from the sleeping, lack of appetite, and brain fog. But I am now about week 3, heading into week 4. Much better. Has made life much easier for me. Rough ride to start though. I didnt think it would get better and considered going off. Glad I didnt.

    Try changing ur diet a bit and eat foods that help deal with depression. And try to get a little exercise also. I find this helps tremendouly. Good luck.

    Hello You will need to give the medication time to work. To start seeing results takes about five weeks

    Stay with this medication it can be worth the discomfort

    Sean,

    Everyone reacts differently to the medication but I've read some horror stories. Fortunately for me I did not have terrible side effects. It has taken a little longer for me to feel the full effects. I'm on week 13 and I am still having more bad days than I would like.
