Hello (I'm new here...!)
I recently unfortunately had to miss taking my medication for 2 weeks. I was on dosage of 150mg...I took the pills for a week and then had a appointment/blood work done with my doctor and my dosage was lowered to 137mg (I recently lost 20 pounds so that's why I went down).
Anyways, now I've been on this new dosage for about 3 weeks and I'm having side-effects like never before. My sleep has been very much affected (can't stay asleep through the whole night), I'm exhausted physically and mentally (even if I get more sleep, it doesn't feel like enough). And most annoying of all but my digestive system has become such a mess. I'm more often constipated than not...I've been taking stool softeners on and off to try to alleviate the symptoms...but I'm getting concerned.
Is this just some severe side effects from my medication being a bit off schedule, or is this a larger issue?
Any thoughts or advice would be greatly, greatly appreciated!
