Started off with 40 mg, side affects were sweating, hands shaking. Told the doc this and was upped to 60 mg/day. The shaking and sweating got worse along with other symptoms. Got more agitated at work, but not so down at home. Have trouble completing my thoughts and am ditzy, was not like that before. i don't like it. Is there something else I should ask for or just give up meds?
