    Give the medication time to work, it may take a few more weeks to notice a change

  • I am on this my dose is 45mg, I found that it took about 6 weeks to start to work. It did make me put on over a stone in weight but I am far more mentally stable and able to cope.

  • Yeah alot of people are saying the same up to 6 weeks so I've only got another few weeks and things should start to change :) and I'm worried about the weight gain I want to loose weight as it is I've already been eating more than normal :( but tbh I just want to get better suppose I could deal with loosing weight after thank you for your feedback

  • I started going to the gym once or twice a week and I eat fruit instead of nibbling on snacks and buscuits which helps keep my weight steady :-)
