    Hang in there

    It took a good 8 weeks at least 

    It gets better 

    Try not upping dose anymore or to quickly I found I was better in just 25 mg

    Good luck

      Thanks. Yeah I’ve just been following what the dr has suggested but am wondering if I would’ve been fine on 25 if I would have given it a few more weeks.. did you ever go higher than 25?

      I did up to 50 and felt really off so back to 25 even though my doctor laughed at me saying it wouldn’t help but for now it has taken edge off!! Almost 10 months

    Ok im no doctor, but it seems like you are increasing way to fast. Your body might take weeks to adjust to on strength. I would stay at one dose for at least a month to determine an increase.
