Even MORE fatigue than before starting

I've taken 150mg of Aza for 3 days now. This morning I woke up after 10 hours of sleep and was so tired that i couldn't make it back up the stairs without it feeling like my heart is pounding out of my chest.

I used to be able to do 3-4 flights before it got that bad. Anyone else have this level of fatigue after starting Aza?

Aza wiped me out when I started taking it. I felt like I was never more than 20 minutes away from a 10 hour nap.
I started taking it before bed.

Did the fatigue go away or lessen? If so how long did it take? Thanks

It might take a while to adjust but it also may be a consequence of the med. I was very weak on 6mp.

I found I suffered heavy exhaustion while being introduced to Aza. It took a while for it to start settling down, but it did eventually improve.

I still tire a bit more easily than I used to and I particularly feel it at the end of the working week, but it is a lot better than it originally was.
