  • 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.

  • dont take in less than 22 hours after the last dose. this means if u take it late, the next day you gotta take it about the time you took it the last day. first two months was hell but its smooth sailing after that. tip: orgasm is still possible, just gotta change the way you go about it. for me its drastic. what worked before stopped working completely... i found out im a lesbian. now its not as easy as before, but also much better than before.

  • It takes a few weeks to fully work and even if you don't feel it's effects while using it, when you stop you can definitely tell the difference.
