Is this normal?
Hi, skye! Are you taking it for anxiety, depression, or both? It's not unusual to feel an increase in anxiety and other side effects when starting an antidepressant but this usually resolves in the first two weeks or so. You should let your doctor know as a dosage adjustment might be in order.
*Common (1% to 10%): Abnormal dreams, agitation, anxiety, nervousness, restlessness*
Best regards and I hope you're feeling better quickly. Wildcat
