Just getting started on it, side effects are lower than with lexapro, but the drug is not as effective for me. Yawning feels odd, its unexplainable, but weird. Having trouble sleeping, but my mood is better. If I had my way, I'd be on Lexapro, but insurance won't cover it anymore. A good alternative though.

I got on this because I experienced too many side effects with another antidepressant. On this one, I have relatively few. I have gained about 5 pounds, but that is okay because I do not weigh very much. It has helped with my depression, but I still feel anxious a lot, but that is probably mostly a logical reaction to life changes. The problem is that I get very moody if I forget to take this ...

I'm somewhat confused:? That's one of the side effects I have, not to mention the weight gain. After about a year on the med I'm starting to get the same initial symtoms. With the addition of memory loss, and loss for words.

Comment:
Effects were immediate for me. The results are very positive. My sense of despair has vanished...my emotional mood swings are minimal, and my irritablility dramatically reduced. My only caution is that I started on too high a dose at first and had some bad side effects. Once that issue was addressed, I have been extremely pleased.
