Hi Lara, I took these years ago. I think I felt a bit better within a week tbh, even though doc said it would take longer.

It was gradual, but about six weeks after I started taking them, I was out one day and I realised "I am not completely miserable, I may even feel....hmm content-ish". It was a good feeling!

Keep taking them. THe only side effect I had was that I kept losing weight. I am only small, but I went down to about 7 and a half stone and they did make me get diarrhoea, but not awful, awful diarrhoea, it was livable with you know?

But everybody thought it was that I had no appetite. My appetite had returned while I was on them actually.

Sorry, I hope what I said about the dreaded D word won't put you off taking them!

I had totally different side-effects, so that is weird! My post has been no help at all to you.

I think it took just over a week, maybe two for them to die down. I had headaches and also felt resltless and irritable (even more so than without them, lol)

I hope you feel better soon smile

....and you have reminded me what I'm in for as I'm going to be changing from fluoxetine to them in a few weeks!
