All it does is make me sleepy, told to take it in morning, however, my day to day activities were at a stand still, no desire to do anything, switched from wellbutrin 75 mg to cipralex 10mg - just feel lousy, no sex drive since 2004, hate this!

I was on it for quite a while a couple years ago, and it really helped my depression and anxiety. I found more at ease and I wasn't as irritable.
