Hi, yes this has probably been the worst one for me too, I'm now on 225mg but get vivid dreams, my anxiety is very high (but that might also be due to my current circumstances) and it's not even really working properly. I'm also sweating a lot but have done on lots of different meds and could also be cos I'm rather overweight.
