Sedation on 45mg

Posted , 4 users are following.

I had my dose upped to 45mg nearly 2 weeks ago and at first I was waking up quite refreshed and very alert, however the last free days I have started feeling a bit sleepy and groggy again. Has anyone experienced that? Will it pass?

    I've been on 45mg for months now and mornings are hard... I wake up groggy every morning it's hard to come round, it's taKeswick me a good half an hour to wake up properly but I'd rather that than the depression.

      As the day went on today I got better so I hope it’s just a stage! They are starting to help with depression I think but I am exhausted of feeling depressed... how is the weight gain on 45mg for you? I have been on Mirt 5 weeks in total and maybe put on what I have lost when I bacame depressed. I am watching what I am eating and exercising/ or walking a lot so fingers crossed I won’t put to much weight over the next few months!

    I've not gained weight I've lost it. I hope this medication works for you, I had to add venlafaxine to pull me out of my depression.
