After a pretty rough first 2 weeks of side effects ( I nearly gave up after a week!) I thought I’d let people know that I’m really feeling good with no side effects. Sleeping so much better, no waking up with nightmares (haven’t had any since day 1) to the extent that I have decided that I am needing to set my alarm clock as slept for 8 hours last night and was late for work!!
The little irritations that were previously really becoming overwhelming and making me unnecessarily angry have pretty much gone so I’m no longer ‘sweating the small stuff’. I take the meds (10 mgs) at lunch which seems to be good for me and I’m no longer waking up with that horrible feeling of dread.
Overall the meds seem to be good for me but it has definitely taken a good month before I started feeling comfortable and relaxed that the meds are of benefit.
I don’t think there is enough warning given by GPs (certainly in the UK) that you’ll feel worse before you get better! Just my take on my experience. I hope it helps 😊
