I have been taking this medication for just over a month and have recently doubled my dose to 100mg daily b/c it wasn't previously helping. Starting the medication gave me hope, and continuing it helped me feel better more often and for longer periods of time. It hasn't, however, helped much with my obsessive-compulsive tendencies, but I will stay on it to see if it will soon help; either ... Show Full Comment

Began taking for post partum depression. I actually feel like myself again! This has been wonderful. I no longer snap at the smallest mishap or have panic attacks in an overcrowded store.

Comment:
Worked well initially when I started taking it about 4 yrs ago. Kept me from suicide. Both my parents died last year, and again, I don't think I could have made it without the med plus supportive friends. But for the past 6-8 months I don't think it's working as well. I'm on 150mg, which I think is pretty high already.
