Pregnancy
Price
  • Not worth the cost
  • It is the best anti-depressant I have ever taken but the cost is outrageous. Hard to believe is cost over $300.00 a month. That hurts being on SSDI.
Interactions
  • Make sure it doesn't interact with your other medications.
  • Higher likelihood of interaction with other medications.
Food
  • Take with food and/or at night to lessen stomach issues, such as nausea, diarrhea, gas.
  • Take with food. Absolutely helped me with my fatigue that I had the entire time taking Effexor.
Sleep
  • Couldn't sleep with it
  • I couldn't sleep with this drug, it killed my sex drive and I had eye pain and nausea within the hour every day after taking it.
  • I take it before I go to sleep. Not sure if it has any effect on my alertness.
