It just takes along time for the medication to actually start working (Months). I feel better then I did but still have dry skin, hair loss etc. Weight wise, it helped alot but agian, it takes along time.

Still have a lot of the symptoms like extreme mood swings, and dry skin. Other symptoms like hair loss and loss of apetite seemed to have gotten worse. Pain in the butt, being a college student, to try to wake up at the same time of day to take meds.

Comment:
I have been overly tired since taking this medication (150mg daily) and I have trouble breathing. Having to take it in the morning on an empty stomach, 1-1/2 hours before consuming anything which includes coffee with cream is rather inconvenient. I usually have to wake up at 5 am, take the medication, then go back to bed for a couple of hours.
