Has anyone struggled with getting to sleep?

I've just started taking it. changed from quetiapine to this as with quetiapine I put on masses of weight. I've been told to take it at night (5mg tablets) for 2 weeks then increase to 10mg.

hope it works for u & shakes go away.

It made me feel very agitated.

I took it for a short while but didn't get on with it, nor did it particularly help. I couldn't concentrate on anything and kept I couldn't sit still either.

Yeah mine turned into akathesia which is not pleasant but a few months on and it's working brilliantly for me with no side effects. Hope it's the same for you.

It will pass I'd watch the shakes in case it gets worse I had to have a extra medication to deal with them.

I'm taking 10mg and feel a bit dizzy, faint and shaky. I only started this morning - I'm kind of hoping it will pass.

I take it how are you feeling weird? Do you have any questions you'd like to ask me I take 30mg how much are you on?

I've just started this and am feeling a bit weird. Does anyone else take it?
