    Please give it 2 more weeks, I had the same thing you are going through, I had so much nervous energy, couldn't sit still and couldn't concentrate on anything. Once you system gets adjusted to the right dosage, the symptoms will subsided. I'm been on it for years, and just upped my dose because of perimenopause.
