I’ve been taking this medication for about 3 weeks now for anxiety and depression. I know it’s “normal” to have worse side effects in the beginning and all that but I’m feel more angry than when I wasn’t on the medication. Like my fuse is shorter. Is this normal? As far as my anxiety and depression goes, I am feeling a little bit better, I just don’t like the angry part because I have always felt like I’m on the edge. I want to feel more relaxed, right now I just feel kinda mean (b-word).
Everyone experiences different side effects... all sorts of different emotions and feeling.. until the body adjusts to the new chemical. It takes time too... and frustrating nit kniwing how long it might take you, as an individual to adjust. But you will. If you havent been on it lo g, be patient... give yourself a couple more weeks... dont be too hard on yourself. This is just your body learning to adapt to a new chemical and accept it. Be patient because im sure you will be feeling better soon.
