Just a update of how I'm doing

Posted , 2 users are following.

hello so my previous post i was on 20 mg 4 weeks and then went to my doctor's and this is my 4th week on 40 mg

i take my tablet in the morning and so far i am still tired and zombified, i could sleep for a week

through out the day i get the nausea and off balance feeling which it comes in waves and i am also sweaty

in the evening i have been quite tense and sweaty and itchy and agitated with heat rashes

through out the day i have experienced twitching tense jaws cheeks etc prickly crawly sensations and headaches and like a water drop feeling on my cheek

my anxiety has not improved at all infant it's got worse on some days, which i understand this is going to be a roller coaster.

i have noticed in some afternoons iv been able to have a bit more energy than usual. been able to keep up with the house work and make food and it feels like i could go for a jog feeling.

the feeling doesn't last long tho half n hour to hour. so far iv felt a few ups in 8 weeks been on this meds altogether. I'm trying my best to not give in and quit it because of the positive stories on here

usually i wake up feeling flat numb and nothing there like I'm not in my body, I'm hoping these side effects go

i have not had a up feeling now for a few weeks. I'm trying to hang in there

freaking anxiety

freaking depression

just keep swimming

    Those evening good feelings will get longer soon, thats the sign of recovery . You will need at least 8 weeks for new dose to start balancing and for side effects to start subside. I am sure you will get better, just dont give up and... keep swimming  we are here for you
