    I was on 15mgs, when I dropped to 7.5 foggyness cleared. I've been on 7.5 for 2 weeks now. I feel fine In comparison to being on 15.

      I was put on it for anxiety, 15mgs was helping with anxiety & sleep but I am gaining so much weight, I cut the tablet in half 2 weeks ago, intend to stay on 7.5 as Dr said "it takes a year for nerves to heal" still fat 😣 but better than severe anxiety.

      I was in hospital in October, I have been told many times from various Drs & nurses that it's a "very slow process & nerves take a year to heal." 😑

      Ecilitipram made me shake, stopped that.

      Might be worth asking them to stop ecilitipram & up mirt to 15mgs?

      Yes-I wake up nervous too. Not fun. I’m soooo outta it. I think I’ll try 15 mg tonight. My doc told me the lower the dose the less therapeutic it is and more sedating.

    Hi, I felt better with 15 to start as mine was for sleeping, I think the lower dose is more sedating as when I increased to 30mg I was ok.

      So you are on it for sleep only? I’m dying on 7.5 mg. How long have you been on it?

      Maybe that’s dramatic😂😬I’m just sooooo tired and foggy. Like can’t get it together. Foggy etc. I feel a little better today. I actually had trouble falling asleep last night after taking 7.5. I fell asleep hard after that though but woke up early. Sigh.

      I’m only on it for sleep so I’m not sure it’s worth it.

      I was given Phenergan in hospital to help with sleep. I bought it over the counter when I got home.👍

      I know what you mean, after 2 weeks on 7.5 I'm more tired & fuzzy headed during the day than I was on 15mgs.

      I've not heard of benadryl, but when I was in hospital they gave me a blue tablet at bedtime, I found out it's called Phenergan. Its sold for " insomnia, etc it is given to people before an operation to calm them & help them sleep.

      Compared to October in hospital, I'm much better thanks.

      My husband bought Phenergan in boots, Google it for yourself. I woke to early this morning, took Phenergan, it calms the nerves in stomach & has a sedative affect.

      My plan was to stay on 7.5 for a while, but it made me so tired during the day, I couldn't get on with my life. So I've went back to 15mgs .👍
