I originally started taking this for the anxiety part of my depression. Worked great, and greatly eased my symptoms. However, my sex drive went to a stand-still. That was the only side-effect that I got from the drug. I am no longer on it, and it was an easy drug to wean off of.

I have noticed a difference in sadness and irritability, but also a PROFOUND lack of interest in sex. Coming from someone who was generally a 6x a week person now I have desire for only once or twice a week. Not a huge problem for me.. but my boyfriend is a little annoyed.

It seemed to work, but I also occasionaly had thoughts of suicide. I would never do it, but it ocaasionally crossed my mind in my thoughts. I don't know if this was from the drug itself or because I was in a deep depression from my current divorce. It's hard to say.
