hi all, ive been prescribed duoxetine by my gp for anxiety and depression, I took it for the first time last night and i felt terrible. Wide awake although its supposed to make me drowsy, jitterry and very sick, in fact i was sick in the night. this morning i feel a bit spaced out but more relaxed with the kids but no appetite.. im just worried about the nausea thing. i hate being sick.

Has anyone experienced this.

I was on this for 2 weeks. I had no appetite & just felt horrible. Sertraline has been the best for me. My psychiatrist always starts me on 1/2 a dose for the first 2 weeks. Can u break the tablet in 1/2. This lessens any side effects.
