  • When I started taking this medication, it made me pretty tired, so I would take it at 5:00 pm. I find that after taking it a year, it doesn't make me tired anymore.

    Anxiety
  • This is the only antidepressant that made a noticeable difference that I could definitely attribute to the drug. Unfortunately, I did have to discontinue taking it after about 9 months due to frequent, extensive bruising.

  • Really helped my nasty anxiety and depression. Have an add-on of Wellbutrin for depression. Was concerned about weight gain but when I stopped taking it I was MISERABLE. Back on it and happy again.

    How long did you take it?
  • Lots of bad side effects. Some cleared up after 1-2 weeks, others did not. Insomnia, headache and morning anxiety still bad after 7 weeks.

  • Dry mouth is severe and led me to drink a lot more than usual. I didn't realize I was drinking so many sugary drinks until I gained weight, and started tracking my food & drink choices.

    Depression
  • Tried to go off during pregnancy - worst time of my life. Baby was born without complications, healthy and has exclusively breastfed for five months and counting. Glad I went back on it.

    Depression
  • I don't feel different. I still have minor anxiety, but no panic attacks. I'm able to control myself under stress better and not "snap" so to speak.

    Anxiety
  • I try to take in the afternooon. If I wait too late I can feel it, but I feel like it's better than taking it early in the morning. So right after lunch for me.
