In total I took this drug for 2 months. The first week I had terrible nausea and insomonia. After that, I was able to sleep and had a little bit more energy. I also had terrible dry mouth for the first month. After the two month period, my dr. removed me from this medicine because I did not lose any weight. Even with a strict diet and exercise 5-6 times per week, I gained two pounds.
