think this treatment is a hassle
  • 20+yr user. Sexual side effects have been mitigated by taking med. holiday (ie, skip 1 dose every 5 days or so). Other side effects also resolved over time (years). Allows me to think rational/logical=normalized my anxiety to manageable lvl

    Social anxiety
  • It worked but the weight gain, sexual side effects and the sleep-induced state might not have been worth it....enjoyed the relief of depression, but am pre-diabetic and terrified of the weight gain pushing me over the edge.

  • Outrageous weight gain - no problems like that with other antidepressants. Difficult to get off. Try something else unless this is a necessity.

    Anxiety
  • It made me jittery at first. Takes the edge off of anxiety and panic, helps to cope with stress. Gained 5-10 lbs, but okay since I was too thin. Been taking it for 14 years - doesn't help with hot flashes for me at all :(

    Depression
  • To not take it at night because it would wake me up making it hard for me to sleep. Once I began taking it in the morning I felt a huge difference!

    Anxiety
  • I feel like myself again. I take it at night and have no problems sleeping. Better than bupropion or mirtazapine for me and comparable to escitalopram.
