I have a terrible time with counting and checking things and I have found this works great. I had to give it time to work. I have been on it for two months now and I am very happy.

I had to quit this drug because of urinary retention. I landed up in the ER needing to be catheterized. I don't think it is a common effect but it happened to me. I really loved this product too. It was really helping me sleep.

started taking 25mg at night , then 50mg, then 75mg, but at that dose my appetite went out of control and in 2 weeks I gained 10 pounds. Not a good thing for me. I would like to know how other patients deal with it.

I took it may years ago for a month -- immediately gained 20+ pounds and felt good for one day, but generally it did not seem to help.

I haven't seen much reduction in my OCD problems, but every time I sneeze, I have an orgasm! And it's allergy season! My doc says 5% of patients experience this side effect- but no one ever talks about it. I LOVE it! I will NEVER give up this drug!
