Yes! Fear not my friend. Tell people you're pregnant (this is probably a better idea for men than women) and take a few days off. Almost everyone is nausious for a few days to a week and then it subsides. I'm at 20mg and never feel sick to my stomach anymore. Try to treat it like a normal stomach problem - lay off food with fat or anything really spicy. I found little to make it better, but paying attention to diet kept it from getting worse.
7 days doesn't seem like quite long enough to try on 10mgs. Seems like almost everyone around here is on less than 10. For most people, you revisit all the same side effects when you up the dose so you may want to talk to your doctor about giving your body a little more time to adjust to the 10 before upping the dose. This is also good because, in my experience, doctors have a lot of 10mg samples but no 20s.
Hang in there and rent some good movies for the weekend.
