  • 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.

  • I have progressively been given higher dose prescriptions as it seems to become less effective over time. I am now on 200mg in combination with 30mg of Mirtazapine and I have found the combination to be quite effective.

  • Significantly reduces my stress triggered IBS attacks. Also significantly reduced the negativity that filled all of my thoughts and gave me back my emotional reservoir. I had no side effects, but I wish it was stronger.

  • Take before bed because it makes you sleepy. Always take on time and every day as withdrawal symptoms are terrible (even within 12 hours of missing dose). Occasional sexual side effects (inability to orgasm), but much less than other drugs.

  • Worked well. Horrible withdrawal symptoms if you miss a dose (even as soon as 12 hours after missed dose). Had to stop taking due to insurance no longer covering. Withdrawal was long and painful. Can't taper due to avail. dosages.
    Taken for: Depression
    Duration taken: two years or more
  • Make sure you always have plenty spare, and remember to take it when travelling as the withdrawal symptoms can start to appear after 24 hours without taking the medication

  • Not a strong effect, came off the medication due to rashes over my body becoming unbearable. I was reluctant to come off the medication because I was feeling 5% better.

  • Get insurance... It's expensive, take it at the same time every day to avoid withdrawal symptoms. It gives me a lot of nausea.

  • I noticed my mood did improve. Ive been on it for about 4 months but I feel that its not as strong anymore. Withdrawl is not good, if I ever miss a dose I have major dizzy spells.
