    does it ever get better? ;(

    I'm at the end of week 4 of 50mg. I have to take it at night because I can't tolerate it in the morning. at the moment it's making me feel so tired, miserable, and numb. today I even had terrible depersonalisation which is not something I usually suffer from ever. I feel awful. I need energy and motivation. this is just making me more depressed. does it ever get better? I can't live with these side effects long-term ;(

    Hey Kiwi, I'm in a similar boat myself and started a thread with similar feelings.

    From my experience you have to try to push through the lack of energy and lack of motivation. As mentioned in my post I can sleep all day if I allow myself. I'm finding exercise is helping. Get the heart beating fast and sweat it out. That usually gives me a good few hours of feeling alive.

    It's all pretty normal in my experience and I'm told it does get better over time.

    I knew someone they turned into an absolute vegetable. miserable, depressed, and sloth-like long term. even with exercise. I've known a few people turn out like this long term on this med sadly. I don't want to be one of them. really need a med that acts in an opposite manner to this.
