I have taken 2 times previously in my life and it was AMAZING! Other than the initial first couple of weeks, but around the month mark both times I was simply me again!!
3rd time not so lucky it turns out...
Think it's been a bit user error and also overthinking... but is it time to give up and try something else even though I had so much faith in these little life saver pills?
I started taking 20mg early March, started to feel much better after 2 weeks, upped it way too soon to 40mg so side effects came back, then started to feel much better again after 2 weeks.. then went to see a doctor and wanting reassurance I asked if they will work as well as they had for me in the past. She said sometimes your hormones can change, as soon as she said that I filled up with anxiety again. Almost 4 weeks ago I had had enough, so went back down to 20mg to start weening off but had a good week and decided to give it a bit longer.. have now been on 20mg for almost 4 weeks and although sleep and appetite is better, it is still all I can think about and I am still pretty much a nervous wreck. Negative thoughts, gritting teeth, feeling low, but just not being able to get it out of my head!! On the plus side I am getting myself to work more often and have joined the gym which I love. Mornings are the worst. At nearly 3 months, albeit with a couple of up and down of dosage, is it time to cut my losses or should I stick my my previous life saver?
I know doctors say give it 6 weeks but would love to hear stories where it is a happy ending eventually xx
