... week, then increased to 60mg. I felt it the very first day I took it. I felt very calm and relaxed. The last 3 days I've been feeling irritable and grouchy/cranky. I had a follow up visit with my doctor today. She said it's not uncommon to feel good at first, then go through a shaky patch, then feel good again. Has anyone had this type of experience or heard of this?
Your doctor is right. It is not uncommon to get a honeymoon period of a few days when starting an antidepressant and then not feel so good. I have had this experience with a few meds I have taken. Try to stay with it for 2-4 weeks to see if it will be the med for you.
Hope things get better soon :)
