I am having some bad side effect from nausea to insomnia fearful thoughts and i am scared, I am on 5mg Cipralex for 6 days now, anyone else in the same position, it really helps when you know your not alone and there is hope in the end. How long did your side effects last? Right now i am staying in my bed as i haven't got the energy to do anything which isn't helping my thought patterns, feeling very lost at the moment.
