I start the medicine before or after I get back? Thanks for any advice!
I would recommend starting once you get back. In my experience, whenever I've started an antidepressant, I usually experience some debilitating side effects in the first week or two. You may not have any negative reactions to the drug, but just to be on the safe side, start when you get back that way nothing ruins your vacation! :)
little; Sounds like we are all on the same page. Just start it when you get back because you don't want to go through the hardest part of this medication while you're away from home. And remember when you do start it. Most do get some side effects that for most people go away from 10 to 14 days from the time you start it and that includes increased anxiety temp. tired, restless, So anyway as everyone is saying best to wait until you get home. But one good thing about this one is that it reaches the peak blood level faster than others in this class normally with this one you reach the peak level in about a month. Enjoy your get away.
