      i was on 50 for 3 weeks and i felt ok the second week but the third was bad so my doc increased to 100 and im in day 5 on it still feel panic attack at the door trying to come as they say it takes time to adjust so if you want to give it more time or you can ask for increasing the dose . hope this help a little . its awful i know .

      good luck and keep updating .

    apparently so... referred to as a blip. advice is to remain on the dose and accept blips happen. main thing is its been helping. its very early days for you. dont escalate too quickly or youll be back to square one with side effects etc

    yes it's normal... wait for at least 8 weeks. Then maybe you would need to increase your dose to 75mg. 50mg is still quite a low "maintenance" dose. Good luck!
