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

  • Worked like a charm when nothing else would, but made me fat.

  • Huge huge huge weight gain. Uncontrollable and absolutely ridiculous. Also, terrible tremors and the withdrawls are terrible, sweating a lot, lot of body odor. Terrible, not worth it because of the serious side effects.

  • Didn't know it could cause such rapid weight gain and rise in blood sugar levels. I've gone from 5'6" 140 lbs to 156 lbs in under a month DESPITE working out 45min/5 days a week. If my blood sugar rises even.01 I will officially be a diabetic; currently I'm only prediabetic. My mood and mental state has never been better but the physical side effects are too long reaching and dangerous to continue. Makes me sleep through 5 alarms and wake up at 10am regardless of bedtime.

  • 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

  • It work well with a combination of abilify for me. I didn't relapse as often and it helped with the psychosis.

  • 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.
