18 Nov 2012 Following a family crisis I became very depressed and unable to function.My GP gave me ssris to begin with and I had to come off them because of symptoms of polyneuropathy.I had taken this trycyclic before so it was a welcome relief when I found that the side-effects were virtually nil..apart from weight gain of course.The initial dosage wasd 75mg and now I have reduced it to 25mg and hope to taper the dose down to nothing within the nexy three months.Doselupin has been a life-saver for me.

07 Aug 2012 Much more calm & relaxed.Depression & anxiety improved,sleep much better. Severe constipation & very dry throat & mouth during night & day.Can become very irritable,not sure if this is a side affect of tablets. Overall a good antidepressant.

07 Aug 2012 i like this medication as i was asleep all day and awake all night before but now im how i should be. im doing ok at the moment but any upset does knock me. when i do still get down i do get really down and it does get to the point of me being suicidal. i kind of think that everyone will be better off with out me even though i know this is not true. i have 5 children and i carry on for them. when your having a down time your no use to anyone really. i hate being this way as i feel it is ruining my life. im 38 and not with a partner as every partner i have had i have pushed away. so i do everything on my own. i struggle though wen im down and life isnt worth living. im happy most of the time though and like i said before it normaly takes something like a family argument or my children falling out that knocks me and i go off the rails :o(
