Thanks for the reply.
No, I don't seem to be experiencing much anxiety from it at all. I'm also on 50 mg Seroquel, that might be blocking it.
I already started on the 25 mg per day since day 1.
My biggest issue is the tiredness (and it isn't from the Seroquel, I'm completely tolerant to that already).
Would you suggest stepping it back to 12,5 mg, or does the tiredness/sluggishness go away on its own with this one. Odd enough is that I read agomelatine is supposed to be stimulating.
I'd ask for modafinil, but it isn't available where I live. Would low dose amisulpride be stimulating?
