Co workers have any said that I am back to the old me that t ... Show Full Comment

    I've been on 10mg for two months now. I feel better than I have in years. More energy, more myself again. Like a fog (the fog of those other meds) has lifted. But this med does come with a price, as it seems most of you have also found - the gastric irritation. I now have an ulcer which needs to be treated.

    It is hard to rate my experience so far since I have just started this medication but I am very hopeful based on my Genesight results. This test analyzes genes that may affect a patient’s response to antidepressant and antipsychotic medications. I have been on so many antidepressants and mood stabilizers for the past 15 years and I have struggled my whole life. My psychiatrist did this mouth swab ... Show Full Comment
