User Comments about Esipram
22 May 2013 I took Esipram by mistake thincking that it was valim And over a period of about 2 days i took 6, 20 mil tablets. I have a serous liver plobem and now my liver hurts in my chest but a very myled I also had all the other side affects which when i went to hospital they told me that they i will ok in 12-14 hours but i didn't ask the doctor if the tablets can cause more damage to my liver. I'm ok now apart from my liver. Has this tablet done some serous damage to my liver?

30 Jan 2012 I took Esipram for about 4 months but lost my job & things went further downhill so i stopped almost cold turkey. I felt that all they were doing is making me impotent, as I am always highly sexual but felt no desire at all after taking Esipram. Also, since I have stopped (5 days now) I have been having AWFUL disturbing dreams at night, one of them being that I shot my pregnant sister in the stomach then in the head... just stuff you'd never think about & I'm not a violent person at all. Basically Esipram did take the edge off the depression but I'd rather be depressed than not have any sexual urges, and I can surely do without the nightmares at night! Another thing I am feeling this strange dizziness as well after coming off them. I know it should've been gradual but was basically sick of my crap life and told my Doc I didn't want them anymore. I don't want to go to sleep tonight knowing I'll dream some terrible stuff again... My best way to ease depression is to be with people you love to be with - the friends that make you laugh, and listen to the music that makes you happy. Stay away from people u don't like and situations you don't want to be in (eg. large crowds etc, if u have anxiety as well).

02 Aug 2012 Hi, how long did it take for the dizziness to go away?

27 Feb 2011 Esipram has worked for me. Two months ago I started taking a generic brand and within 4 weeks all the symptoms of depression had returned. It was very scary.

27 Feb 2011 I am only one tablet a day. I took an overdose of Prothiedin , ended up in hospital, wasn't kept in as a patient. I have since being seeing a Phycoligist once weekly and find I am not so down all the time, like before.
