Hi Sweet, that's true that certain medications can make you feel worse before you feet better. My concern is the kind of side effects you are exhibiting. They need to be overseen by your physician. Stopping the med even for a day will reduce the levels inside you which may make you uncomfortable. I am always concerned when someone resorts to self harm. You do need to call your doctor to let him know what is going on now. Sometimes it's a matter of trial and error until the right medication as well as dose is found. Don't give up but see or call your doctor. Wish you well Sweet. x
