      I feel nausea for like the first 3 weeks of taking it. I find I sweat a lot more than usual and weirdly enough and I don't know if this happens to others but I tend to dream a lot more. Night sweats and lack of appetite are the other things i can think of. I'm on 150mgs for context.

      It worked alright for me, but starting it up kicked my butt. It greatly affected my autonomic nervous system. I struggled to fall asleep, then struggled to wake up. I'd forget to breathe and black out. I felt so sick for about a week, and then my body mostly adjusted. I had to be careful to take it on time. Otherwise, those symptoms would come back. It helped some with the depression, but after maybe a year or two of being on it, it stopped working for me. I didn't notice at first, but I dissociated for months, walking through what felt like a dream, until I was finally knocked out of it by a big life event caused by my dream-like state. I got fired from my job, which caused me to reevaluate my life, and I had to switch medications. I hope it works better for you. I tend to react poorly to medications. Just keep an eye out for side effects. Best of luck!
