Comment:
I was prescribed it for depression, anxiety and plus I have been dealing with chronic pain for 6 years so the doctor thought it would help me. I took it before going to bed and woke up in the middle of the night drenched in sweat, but freezing and shaking uncontrollably. My teeth were chattering too and I couldn't stop shaking.
