  • Watch your drinking habits while taking this. Can cause you to drink more and not feel the total effects of it.

    parent of two, stressful office job

  • Did not work for me; in fact, made me feel worse and suicidal for a couple of weeks, with much more wild mood swings. Switched to Wellbutrin which was much better.

  • The worst side effects for me is memory loss and dry mouth. I struggle to complete a task from beginning to end without getting distracted.. Kinda like adult ADD or something.

    Anxiety and depression amongst other things

    Used for a few months

  • Be sure to take it at the same time every day. I get horrible, migraine-like headaches if I take it late. Also, I've gained so much weight since taking it.

    Depression

    Used for two years or more

    Pre-menopausal

  • Helped me during a difficult separation. However, I no longer felt motivated. Switched to taking it at night due to drowsiness, and I gained 10 pounds. Weaned myself off 5 months ago, terrible side effects and can't lose the weight.

    Used for two years or more

  • Started working after about 3 weeks, and have felt amazing since. Did change my sleeping habits, but nothing too drastic.
