  • The withdrawals do suck. It's like a horrible hangover. However, it's the most effective of the drugs I've tried, and the side effects can be much better than Effexor. If your insurance covers it, it's worth it.

  • It will make it hard to get up in the morning. I recommend setting multiple alarms and setting them early.

  • Avoid withdrawal at ALL COSTS. Vivid nightmares, migraines and insane mood swings. I take 100mg 1x 24/7 with buspirone. It was effective in the beginning, but has tapered off. I would suggest another medication before this one.

    Depression
  • Not sure how I feel about it yet. I feel better on this than I Effexor and I was on that for years. I do get really intense nightmares and have trouble sleeping sometimes. And sometimes I feel confused, like out of it.

  • This medication is not just bad, it is downright evil. The drug makers know that this drug causes terrible, life-destroying withdraw symptoms and they don't provide any means of tapering. They hold you hostage.

  • For me, I wish I had known about the bleeding. I have taken it for around five years. It has helped keep my sanity until I retired from work because of physical and mental illness(depression)

  • Do not miss. Back of your neck hurts and it feels as if little electrical shocks are going up into your brain. Take it at the same time every day. It saved me. Period.
