You will start feeling better soon. And it will get better and better. It will take 4-6 weeks however for it to reach peak effect.

Thanks. I started with 37.5 milligrams a day for one week and now I'm at 75 milligrams per day. I hate this feeling.

It can take 2-3 weeks to settle in, for some folks, 4-6. This is true for any changes in dosage up or down, so best not to change anything until things settle down. Also, it is common for things to feel like they're actually getting worse, especially first 3-5 days or so, don't fret or make changes, this is common. Hang in there, keep in touch.
