This is the most horrible medicine I have ever taken. I took it for 3 months. I became severely depressed while taking it. It was the worst depression I have been through in my 11 years of dealing with this horrible mental illness. I became completely psychotic and suicidal. I put a dangerous weapon to my throat and wanted to die. I hurt myself with a dangerous weapon and was taken to the ER.
