Cons: No appetite (however no weight loss either darn!), night sweats and increased sleepiness ... Show Full Comment

    My husband had esophagal and tongue cancer. Lots of awful treatment & lots of pain. After my husband died, I couldn't stop crying at very inappropriate times, making work and social life very difficult. It didn't help that I was going thru menopause at the same time. This has been a Godsend. I had very few side effects and they were gone in a short time.

    Anti depressants work for some not others. It seems I react to anti depressants no matter which ones. Suicidal, aggressive behaviour etc, check out this link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Akathisia .
