Hi everyone, if anyone could help me out I would be eternally grateful.
Initially, my doc wanted me on 75mg per day but it was too intense, so we scaled it back to 35mg for 2 weeks, then 57mg for 2 weeks, and now moved up to 75mg.
I was on the instant release tablets (so twice a day), but when I was taking a full 35mg tablet in the evening I literally could not sleep. I was super restless, kept tossing and turning.
I did some research and a lot of people here recommended switching to prolonged release, so I spoke to my doc and when I was due to go up to 75mg we switched to prolonged tablets (viepax).
I’ve now been taking the 75mg prolonged release for a week and a half, and initially whilst everything seemed ok I’ve been having it rough these last couple of days. When I wake up, I’m sooo dizzy and nauseas, my head feels heavy, there’s pressure in the back of my head, I thought I was getting better because my dizziness seemed to be going away but it’s back with a vengeance this weekend. Honestly I’m so scared and depressed right now.
Could this just be the increased dose and it will settle, or is it because I switched from instant release?
Thanks for reading
