Had foggy heavy head insomnia/ sleepiness sweating and hot flushes and beating heart. I tried it for two months and feel like I need desperately to give it another go. Do some people take longer than that for effects to go away
Usually the side effects subside within 2-4 weeks. They can continue after that, but usually will not go away. If you want to try it again and wait for more than two months you can. Sometimes the side effects are not as bad the 2nd time. There may be other meds that you can use for PMDD. Best to talk to your doctor about your alternatives.
Best to you :)
