do you mean I have to wait even longer for this sleepiness & loss of confidence to go away. would it generally take this long? Should I take the med at night time as at the mo I take them in the morning & sleep all day?. I do feel a tiny bit more awake in the evening like now. Been awake for 2 hours & ready for bed again.As well my eyes feel so tired I just want to shut them. Will all this go if I wait?
Tell your doctor that the sleepiness is not going away.The side effects should have gone away by now. You are not the only one that has had these side effects that did not go away. You can try taking it at night to see if that helps. You have already put 6 weeks in, if it helps to take it at night then you can decide if you want to wait it out any longer.
Let us know how it goes.
Hang in there :)
Hi, it is unusual to still be experiencing these side effects. I agree that you should consult your doctor/psychiatrist about this.. yes you could try taking the medication at night, this works better for some people. Get some professional advice an go from there. Hoping you are feeling better soon!
