Hello, Lili! How are you?

No, that is a common dosage, it is normal for it to prescribed in a large bolus, which is then slowly tapered to treat some conditions, if they are severe.

The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, acne, insomnia, nervousness, and fluid retention.

However, if you are unsure, don't be afraid to double check with your doctor, or pharmacist. It's never a bad idea to be cautious.

Is there anything else I can help with?

It seems like a lot because of the amount of tablets you have to take to hit the 20mg, but it’s not too high a dose. I was on 25mg, then tapered down to 15mg bit had a flare up and had to go to 50mg. Nearly lost my mind on 50mg.

This medication can make you feel all sorts of things. For me, 25mg was amazing - so motivated, energised. It did interrupt my sleep though. After tapering down to 15mg, having a flare up, then having to increase to 50mg, I had a really tough time. I was so angry inside and had no control over my emotions. I’d wake up sweating, my heart would race. My poor partner was walking on eggshells. I was sleeping for max 5 hours a night.
If you have any side effects that you are concerned about, make sure you talk to your doctor or pharmacist.
