  • It worked for me, but I wish I had known what dose I needed. When I received the right dose, it worked great.

  • Taking it for symptoms related to BPD - working wonders. At times I can feel a bit nauseous or shaky but the relief I feel is worth it. Pairing it with an SSRI has really helped too (specifically lexapro or Prozac), been on it for a couple weeks, considering continuing it for another year if needed

  • WEIGHT GAIN No control over appetite, craved salty and sweet food only/ Started to abuse laxatives . This was only 1.25mg dosage. Bad drug for me. And diabetes does not appeal to me.

  • Found it useful for treating psychosis and intrusive thoughts, also helped with anxiety & was a miracle for helping me sleep. I would take it at 6pm and be barely able to keep my eyes open by 10pm. Had brilliant sleeps off it. I stopped taking it after I gained a noticable amount of weight. I began noticing I was obsessed with food, tried to starve myself etc. Decided the psychosis would be worth enduring if it meant I didn't develop an eating disorder or obesity.
