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.

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.

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. But I loved the way it worked for those 2 weeks, the best part was having a sex life again.
