In brief: Ami side effects

Not unusual but can be circumvented by using the lowest effective dose - 2.
5 - 10 mg. The dose is individualised based on med sensitiviy, family history of success (and the effective dosage), type of illness being treated, comorbid medical and emotional disease, anticipated side effects and potential/ currently existing interactions with other medications/supplements.
