Update after 14 weeks, feeling better at last!

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi to everyone after Christmas! Joanne and Nataliya, I don't think I'd be here now without your support and encouragement, I can't thank you all enough. I'm now 14 weeks in and all the side effects are gone, just a bit of fatigue occasionally, and shaky hands! Anxiety has completely gone, back to work next week, how amazing! The increase from 20 to 40mg last month went well, just a bit of nausea but nothing like starting. Only one blip so far, but I know what it is now so can deal with any more. Appetite back and put on about 7 kilos, but no more bananas, ever!!! My life has started again, I'm sure the happiness levels will continue to improve on the way up to 6 months. If you're just starting the meds or in the awful midst of the dreaded side effects, keep on going it WILL work. It's a hellish few weeks I know, but quite suddenly you'll know it's starting to help, bit by bit. Just post on here, and you'll get advice, encouragement and support if you need to. All the best wishes for the New Year x
