    I started out taking 50 mg. for sleep problems. It helped some, so Dr. said to increase to 100 mg. Did work somewhat better, but, developed tinnitus and breathing problems. Tinnitus become very loud and with my Dr. ok, I ceased taking.

    Comment:
    My husband is 30 years old and on this med for bipolar. He has lost all sexual desire and is emotionally detached. Know its the med cause he stopped it for a short period of time and the side effects went away. When he went back on it they came back immediately. Hate this drug.
