    Hi kmm

    How long have you been on this medication. I am starting my 5th week. I am taking it for anxiety. I still have ups and downs. What I have learned that it takes awhile for it to stabilize in your body. If you are having a terrible time with it tell your doctor. He might be able to help you or give you something else. Be strong and hope you start feeling better.

    Hi didn't your doctor tell you it's common to feel worse before the drug gets fully into your system?  It can take around 6 weeks.  If the side effects are too much to bear then tell your doctor and s/he will change you to another med.  x
