I started out with 5mg at night to help me sleep. No problem. Slept like the dead. But 3 days later I looked like I had elephant feet & legs. 1 week later I still look that way! Help...how do I get rid of the edema????

Comment:
I have been on 2.5mg of this medication for a few months now along with a low dosage of Cymbalta and very low dosage of Nerontin to help me sleep. My mood is better but the weight gain is having a bad effect. I am ok with the gain in my boy but I now have chipmunk cheeks, like water retention or a little bloated. And I am experiencing memory loss...at 26 years old. Back to the drawing board??

I used to take this as a maintenance med and found the side effects worse than benefits so stopped. Moved, started seeing another doc, who prescribed it again but on an "as needed" basis. Also take Pristiq 100mg 1x daily now as maintenance. Feel much better!
