    It's an SSRI (anti depressant) just like many others like prozac but it's geared more towards stress/anxiety as well. As for how it will work for you it's hard to say as it can affect people differently. You're on a low dose so it may well take a couple of months for you to see any significant changes but it should help you to be less stressed and less affected by the trauma you and Josh are going though. x

    All medicines will have side effects sadly, I remember temp changes and a bit of nausea for the first couple of weeks and a more settled feeling after about 1-2 months where I could tell they were working, I was on 30mg. I'd say if they don't feel like they're helping after a couple of months or the side effects don't start to wear off after a while then pop back in. It took my mum quite some time to adjust to them, she also started having bad dreams, I advised her not to take them at night but to take them in the morning then at night she'd not have them racing round her system.

    Just re-read my comment and apologise if it came off as me saying the mods are slacking in removing it, I meant the terrible and often unintelligible content of it!

    Nooo tis fine haha! If anyone remembers what it was like when the filter wasn't in place it made the forum unusable, it's still like that, it's just that 95% or more of it is caught and then manually removed by the mod team before it shows up to members.

    Back on topic I've been feeling much better lately, I did worry a couple of months ago that I may have relapsed into bad habits and unhelpful patterns of thought but it seems I got back on top of it.

    My mums ignorance towards me is still painful but I feel I just have to let it go now otherwise it's going to consume me.

    I haven't seen this before now. Hopefully since she shared this with us, she told someone who was able to be there with her and help her.
    I really hope she's better. :(
