A 46-year-old female asked:

Is workplace safe?: It is not normal to have such hypersensitivity and ill-effects. Is there something about the workplace which is toxic? Do others have similar reactions? If this sensitivity is unique to you then your perceptions and reactions may be hyper-acute due to chemical imbalance. Seek a psychiatrist to help determine which medication can ease the symptoms or else it may follow you as you move on.

Something's changed: Hard to say what but something has changed to make it newly uncomfortable to sleep on your stomach. Perhaps increased or decreased weight is the cause. Perhaps an injury to your back or hips. Is the liver, gall bladder or pancreas inflamed? Are you still smoking cigarettes? Are you restless? Good health practices will make for better sleep hygiene and restfulness.

Try lower dose first: I usually give 20 mg test dose looking for any side effects or dizziness, then go with 20 mg bid for a week to test effects on akathisia, tremor, pulse and bp. Dose adjustments are either 20 mg tid or 10 mg bid. I rarely need to have patient increase to 40 mg bid. As long as benefit > side effects then ok to increase.
