I know I'm repeating myself but just in case you haven't read the old posts I say hang in there with the side effects and go up as slowly as possible. I started at 10 mg for a week and added 10 mg each week until I got to 80. I am now doing great with 80 1x a day. The first few weeks were rough. My students, i teach middle school, definitely had to suffer through my extreme irritability and tiredness. The first few days the tiredness was the worst and I slept a lot! I was worried and ready to give up many times during the whole process but in retrospect I'm glad he made me go up so slowly. I seemed to get the side effects back for one or two days each time they raised the dose but now it's fine. I currently take 80 mg once a day along with 25 mg of Zoloft.
