I know that the side effects are mostly sickness, sweats and tiredness. The sickness does pass with time but can take awhile. As for being tired i find this as well but i just cant sleep since iv been on them. Im awake all night and find myself starting to fall asleep about 6/7pm but after about a hour or two im wide awake again. I asked for sleeping tablets off my doctor again but he didnt want to give me them. Any advise on how to get my sleep patten back again?

Thank you and keep strong everyone

    I am totally exhausted all the time at the moment, averaging about 5/6 hours a night, and very vivid dreams, about things I have done or people I have been with, it is as if I am reliving the events of the day.

    Day 15 tomorrow and the nausea has vanished and the headaches are no longer always there, still have very little appetite, but I am managing small meals. No emotion whatsoever, everything a chore at the moment.

    im the same rachel just now i still cry everyday and i feel i cant cope. its not nice to feel like this i wish i was just normal like most folk. Im struggling to speak to people, i just want to hide in bed watching dvds on my own. My break up with my ex is also really hurting me and making me worse.

    Hi Col,

    thanks for your message. I dont know what started me on my downward spiral again i wish i did know just like you.. all i do know that my partner leaving me has made me so much worse and im finding it tough to get better without her this time really tough. When i was at my worst before flu i was always wanting to be on my own etc and didnt want to see anyone or my partner but without her im so lonely i hate it. Thank you for your support on here it keeps me going x

    hi nikki, i think i know where you're coming from. me and my partner split up about 4 months ago. since then she tried to commit suicide, i got a text message at 4 in the morning saying that she'd tried to end it all but didn.t succeed just lost her car, job and flat. and was i happy now. report just in the paper saying she was more than twice over the limit and banned from driving for 2 years. i've been on flu for about a week, just hope it'll work. i hate feeling like this, moreso because i didn't cause the break-up that's given me a break-down
