17 Jun 2013 I put on 17kg going from 70kg to 87kg since taking this medication. I have become a reckless spender who no longer plans and really cant give a damn about much at all. No longer the passionate, lively, creative person I was. Also sleep at least 10 hours a day and lost sex drive and no longer socialise. Have been asking the doctor to change my medication.

27 Jul 2011 I found this drug moderately successful. I have not experienced tremendous relief from my depression, but it has definitely lifted me out of my most helpless state. It has given me the beginning push to allow myself to get my life back under my control. I experienced NO side effects. But this information is all from my personal experience - I am NOT a professional, reputable medical professional and this review should not be listened to above that of a doctor or specialist.
