Have been on Fetzima for well over 1 yr now. Started with 20mg, after a few days to 40mg. No side effects for me. After 3 months changed from 40mg to 80mg, 3 months later to 120mg. Also, take low dose of Wellbutrin. This RX has worked well!!

Comment:
I saw a new psychiatrist yesterday afternoon,I was looking to find something that was more effective in treating my mood than what I was already taking. I was previously taking Zoloft which was fine, no negative effects but nothing that lifted me up either. She recommended Fetzima. I took the pills around 12:30 pm.
