Tony, how are you feeling today? I hope that the side effects are leaving and you are not feeling as bad. I agree with the comments- I would suggest if you are not feeling better to call the doc. It is possible that you are allergic to the drug. It happened to me with 2 meds- I couldn't tolerate them. Keep us posted.

Hi Tony,

You may need to open capsule, empty half of capsul so you are getting half the dose. Try that for 4 or 5 days then resume pescribed dose.

I think you will be better dosing gradually and allowing yur body to become accustomed to it. Review plan with Dr.

Good Luck.

Hi there Tony2008

Welcome to HW :-)

For me fluoxetine was a life saver (literally)...took me about six weeks to get the full effect...had lots of counseling to help me along the way too - something you may wish to consider :-)

To put your mind at ease - if you are at all worried about your meds plz don't hesitate to ring your doc. and ask for information and advice.
