I am sorry that I don't have specific experience with your new Rx to share...
...but did want to give you kudos for being pro-active and seeking a new regimen as you are, in order to feel your best.
Also great work on finishing up your program for PhD...that is HUGE! Can I ask what your Dr. title will be in? So impressive!
Keep working towards your revised management goals! I wish you the best with finding a med that performs well for you with the least (dare we hope, *NO*) side effects!
Keep us posted so we can keep you cheered on.
