Thanks for the advice, Sigismund.. It does sound obvious now (titrating slowly) but it never occurred to me. In fact my doc mentioned going up to 50 mg in a week.
I might try this again in a few days, at 12.5 or even 6mg, as I really want to give this med a fair trial, but right now I feel terrible - very anxious and zoned out. I had to take 4mg of Klonopin versus my usual 1-1.5mg dose.
Maybe agomelatine's "mild" side effects have been downplayed or -more likely- maybe its my individual biochemistry acting up. It's strange, as I'm usually able to take med side effects in stride, but I haven't felt this sick and out of it in a very long time.
Anyway, I really appreciate your advice, thank you :)
