    Hi Don,

    Yes! I've noticed it since going from 20mg to 40.

    I never had it as bad on the 20mg and also it seems to change with the brand's I use. The Drs say they should all be the same but I swear some are different than others.

    My head 'chatter' isn't always negative though but it is endless! It can keep me from a sound sleep. If I get a song in my head, it just goes on and on! Some times it feels like it's my subconscious is just dribbling on and on and I have no control over it.

    I've been reading up on mindfulness and meditation which maybe of some benefit.

    Have you been on it for long?
