Have taken for 5 days. Experiencing sweats, nervousness, trembling, dizziness, blurred vision & others. Dr said it would take 2 weeks to start working. Will these experiences cease as I continue taking it?
I agree with Laurie on this. I was prescribed this about 3 months ago, and had some of the same side effects for a few days, but they did go away, and it made me feel so much better. I hope this will happen for you too. But definately notify you're dr. if it doesn't get better. I wish you the very best of luck. Take care. Ruthie
Ask your doctor to adjust the dosage, unless you are already on the lowest dosage possible, which would be 100mg (immediate release / SR) or 150mg for XL. Are you on the lowest dosage already? 5 days isn't a long time but blurred vision is a side-effect that I won't tolerate. I'm on Wellbutrin (150mg XL) and dizziness for the first week or two was the only bad side effects I had. This is just my opinion, but if a med is causing me that much trouble I tell my doctor to take me off of it and try something else, I can't tolerate a bunch of bad side effects, it's not worth it.
