Talked to pharmasist and they say just keep taking it and it should get better but I don't know how long he will be able to take all these side effects has anyone else had this trouble and if so how long till things started to get better any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I think it will take a good couple of weeks for the side effects to go away. Each day it should be less and less. If after a couple of weeks they don't go away I suggest he talk to the doctor. I just hope that he can hang on long enough to get the benefits of the medication. It takes about six to eight weeks for a medication like that to reach it's full potential. But he could start feeling better before then.

Best wishes to you and welcome to the forum.

Hugs, Karen

Thanks for your help I appreciate it he has decided to cut the pill in half and take it in the morning instead of the evening so now he will b on only 5mg instead of 10 and try that for awhile and see if he feels better every day seems to be worse than better. Such a bad time of yr. not much of a Christmas feeling that way. Again Thanks for your reply very nice of you take time out to answer.

Merry Christmas
