I am having a lot of nausea and headaches that don't seem to go away. I also feel like it's really hard to focus on one thing right now mentally and I am so so tired. Will these symptoms go away soon or do I need to quit this medication before it gets any worse?
Wolf; no this is all normal the side effects when you start everyone is different but can last from 7 to 14 days, then they well get better and the medication should start to lesson with the side effect and slowly you should start to feel right. Make sure you try to take it at about the same time each day and if all goes well you need to stay on this for 6 to 8 weeks while feeling better as you go. It's just the first couple of weeks that most people feel the worse. Best of luck to you and with luck you should start to feel better any time now.chuck1957
