I agree with Cary-Ann, these a/d's take 4-6 weeks to kick in. If you have any of the fast acting meds such as Xanax or Klonopin, it might be a good idea to use those until you adjust to the medication. Also, have you changed the time you take it? Maybe taking it at a different time might help ease some of the side effects. Good luck!
