Posted , 9 users are following.

It's been a roller-coaster ride, 1st few weeks had bad nauseous sickness, feeling tired lots, high anxiety insomnia,, gurgling tummy bowel problems,and fuzzy foggy head, end of week 5 into week 6 started to feel good seeing light at end of dark tunnel. Now last 4 days feel so down no motivation depression feels worse than ever, the side affects have returned with a vengeance, just wondering does this happen at nearly 7 weeks in, I'm thinking this is not going work for me I just feel horrible, should I stick with it?advice greatly appreciated

    I wish I could offer advice. I'm in a similar boat; four weeks at 40mg and still have intrusive thoughts, agitation, spacey, foggy, tearful, anxious....I've heard it takes awhile but it seems ridiculously long. I hope you find your answers...I'm still waiting too.
