I thought you asked your doctor for it after reading about it here ???? Regardless, eventually, you have to bite the bullet, try a new med and give it an adequate trial at a therapeutic dose (and 2 weeks is not an adequate trial, frankly). Yes, the initial side effects can be scary, demoralizing and, at times, incapacitating during the start up phase, but if you don't endeavour and endure during the uncomfortable start up phase, you will never be in a position to find relief and start down the path of full recovery and putting your life back in order. It's as simple as that. There comes a point when you have to stop researching a med ad nauseum and try it. Everyone on this board could spend months and months and months reading and re-reading, questioning and re-questioning the adverse effects and benefits of a particular med, but, what it comes down it is individual experience. Harry may react badly to a particular med and reap no benefit from it, while Sally will achieve remission. There is an expression, crude as it may be - Sh*t or get off the pot!
