100mg of Stretaline??

Anyone felt really bad on this dose? It's only been a week for me but I'm so anxious and sweaty get dizzy spells have no motivation to do anything outside of house. I have a job interview in 2 weeks time working for the NHS I'm really excited which is a positive but I'm hoping I feel better and can handle a new work place and a lot more people than my present job. I don't want to feel fear 😥

Did you start of on 100mg ?

I know people that have had great results from these meds but they started of on a lower dose and worked their way up as to eliminate the side effects which it did help

The side effects hopefully will be a lot better in a couple of weeks but if you have started on a 100mg you could always ask your Doctor if you could go have a smaller dose and work your way up because you are feeling bad side effects

Well done with your new job :-)

Once you start there it may also help your anxiety as you will be distracted , you are going to have fears everyone does starting a new job but I am sure they will look after you and after a few weeks getting to know everyone you will settle in lovely , you will have to let us know how it goes :-)
