    This medication helped tremendously with my depression. However, due to some of the side effects I am considering stopping it. I have never been so angry in my life. The smallest things set me off into a rage. Im mean to my boyfriend and yell at my pets constantly. I feel like ripping out my hair at times. I have never taken the brand name because I lack insurance. Im not sure what to do.

    I have tried the generic twice now - the first two weeks are wonderfull, then horrible side effects. My doctor said to switch back to my old depression meds.

    I've been taking it for just about a month and I like it ok. I lost a lot of weight the first two weeks and since then the only side effects I've experienced are nausea and some anxiety. It helps my depression as well as the expensive drugs I was on before so I'm going to continue with it.
