  • 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.

    Duration taken: A month or so
  • Don't assume you will be a victim of all side effects, I've heard it called "no sexapro". I had no issues so don't convince yourself you will.

  • May take a while to work, so it is hard to know if it is working for you. Be prepared for some jitteriness when you start and difficulty orgasming.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • I usually take it in the evening, around 9pm because it puts me to sleep an hour or two later.
