Wow! This is EXACTLY what I felt after just 3 days on this stuff (among several other things). I was taken off this stuff quickly, weird dreams/thoughts, cold sweats, eight gain, the list goes on. I went 8-days and this flu stuff was still hanging in, it stopped after 12 days but I went off it right around then. Hope this helps.
Hang in there, the side effects should subside within the first couple weeks and the medication start working within a month. It takes sometime and patients, but I found it to be a very effective medicine. I too stopped taking it because it made me sleep too much, but this may not be the case with you.
