Hi im now day 16 and i feel asif the side effects ate getting worse.

The nausea is awful my whole body aches and feels weak. My head feels foggy. I feel so so tired and dizzy. 

Can anyone tell me when these sideeffects are likely to get better? Im only taking 10mg and im wondering if it is even worth it. Any input is appreciated xxx

    I did not like this drug. I went off after only 8 days I couldn’t take it. Zero sleep. Such anxiety I wanted to and thought I wasn’t dying. I stopped them 3 days ago and am a tiny bit better. Every morning I have such anxiety it’s a panic attack. Chest pain, cannot breathe, worry, tension. Then I cry uncontrollable for an hour. I could not tough it out. I thought for me it was best that I quit sooner rather than getting more of this in my system. I have had anxiety and depression issues for 4 years now odd and on. I was off all meds for 9mos with the occasional Ambien which I cannot take anymore either. Amnesia and dependence. I guess what I’m saying is if your body is truly rejecting don’t tough it out. Listen to yourself as everyone is different. I wish you luck!
