Comment:
My psychiatrist gave me samples of this med because I lost my health insurance and even generic buproprion is expensive for me. He gave me this med as a replacement for my buproprion since he could give me samples at no cost to me. I was on this med for a few months. Buproprion has always worked very well for me consistently through the years. I feel I did a little better on this than the high dos ... Show Full Comment

I've been taking this for about one month. At first, I was very lightheaded/dizzy and had some weakness/trembling in my hands. I also experienced an increase in urination.

I had been on different medications for years and was put on Aplenzin. I took the first pill on Tuesday morning and was filling slightly sick that evening which I attributed to switching medications. Wednesday morning I woke up feeling dizzy and had to sit down while trying to get ready for work. I actually took a motion sickness pill mid-morning and one mid-afternoon just to be able to functio ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
This drug is fairly new to me. I have only had experience with one other antidepressant before Aplenzin unsuccessfully. This has not truly assisted my level of anxiety, but has given me an overall feeling of well being and has diminished emotional reactions to troubling aspects of my environment. It has been successful at stabilizing me to previous normality.
