    Everyone may experience different side rffects. The startup can be brutal I'll tell you that. Thry may not affect you that much though. Good luck. If you are suffering badly now, it will get worse before it grts better. These meds work very slowly. After a week, I felt a big difference in the start up effects, but felt much better 10 weeks in

    Pure panic attacks and a terrific feeling of fear, was the worse for me, but I was one of the unlucky one's who had most of the side effects even rare ones, depressed was bad too, but everyones different, i took 4 weeks off work, iv never heared of anyone working for at least 2 weeks on this med. dont mean to put you off but the comman side effects are very nausea, dizzy, dry mouth, sweating, and a few more but doesn't mean you'll have them, you should prepare youself first, on the positive side your life will be great when they work for you in time, good luck.
