Oh dear, seems this drug does not agree with you at all.  I have been on those that do the same, but was fine on Sertraline.  Some drugs suit some people but not others.  

I think you need to see your doctor and tell him the problem and see if he can advise you on a different drug for your anxiety.  You obviously cannot go on like this.    

However, most mood medications do take 6-8 weeks to take effect, and you will feel worse before you feel better.  But in your case, if you have to return to work soon, that is a problem.  Is this the first anti depressant you have been on?  Probably a shock to your system.

Poor you.  I do hope things improve.

I too live in the UK.

aw I'm sorry youre feeling so awful. but from experience, its very common what youre feeling. I too felt all of that but I stuck it out because I wanted to get better. 4 days is nothing. if you still feel this horrible in about 2 weeks talk to your doc. I been on 50mg for almost a year now and it has helped tremendously. but it was hard at first. I hope things get better for you. just try and stay busy as hard as it may seem. distract yourself from these side effects. it helps. if the side effects are really that intolerable then talk to your doc asap. I really hope this med works for you like it has for me. what dosage are you taking?
