I am on week three of 50mg. The side effects I have experienced most are reduction in sex drive, dry mouth and a bitter/metallic taste in my mouth. I am hoping they will go away with time, but they are not bad enough to keep me from continuing. On the positive side I am beginning to see some improvement in anxiety. I no longer worry as much as I used to. But no where near cured. Planning to go up to 100mg once I see my doctor again in a couple weeks. Also, I was on Effexor prior to this and that was hell, had to come off it because it made my anxiety worse.
