Taking for three weeks.My M.D.Sez no more unless I go to a shrink.This drug is great if you need to poop your pants and stare off into space for several hours a day.No real results of any kind so I'm gonna wean off of it and try yoga or something other than a chemical of serious nastiness and questionable efficacy.
