Hi, aj! "Common (1% to 10% of users): Abnormal dreams, agitation, anxiety, restlessness, depression, drugged feeling, emotional lability (mood swings), nervousness"
Yes, these are side effects one may experience in the first few days to a week or two. Fortunately, they tend to get better everyday until they resolve. If it's really bothersome or you're not sleeping well let your doctor know ~ she/he may be able to make some suggestions to help you get through this initial period as you adjust.
It may as long as 4-6 weeks to really feel the full benefits of this medication, so try to be patient.
Best regards and I hope you're feeling better quickly. Wildcat
