What you are experiencing are normal side effects when first starting this type medication. These side effects should subside in the first couple of weeks and it will take upwards of a month for the med to reach max effectiveness so be patient. Don't let the increased feelings of anxiety in the beginning scare you off. It will get better over time. The nausea and diarrhea will slowly return to normal also. If it becomes unbearable, let the doctor know.
