Hi Chloe -
I haven't been on in a while so I'm just catching up on posts. I went from 10mg to 20 mg after 10 weeks on 10mg.

I had some side effects, but not as bad as in the very beginning. In total most of them only lasted about 10 days - a bit of nausea, some anxiety, brain fog (trouble staying on task, coming up with words, etc.), definitely night sweats, a bit of a headache if I didn't take it at the right time, some insomnia & daytime sleepiness. The only s/e's I still have are the sleepiness/fogginess and occasional night sweats (but I'm pre-menopuasal).

I've been on 20mg since January. I still have depressive symptoms about 10 - 14 days before my period - but not as bad as I was on 10mg. Good luck to you!

I have been on 10mg for two months and was just upped to 20 because it wasnt working like it had the past few weeks. I am now having major night sweats, anxiety, mental confusion and severe bruising. Has anyone experienced this. Maybe I should go back to 10 but I just wanted to feel as good as I had in my 6th week.
> Thank you!
