The side effects by far outweigh the antidepressant effects - these include chronic constipation,urinary retention, and worst of all, ataxia and loss of balance

I had postpartum depresssion an number of years ago and my doctor put me on this medication even after I told him another med had worked in the past. I'm lucky to be alive to day because I had undiagnosed bipolar disorder and this drug made me much worse

I have taken Ludiomil for several years. I would try the new Antidepressants when they became available. The doctors would always put me back on the Ludiomil. I stopped trying the new ones and I haven't been in the hospital for severe depression for the past 15 years. I will only take Ludiomil. It has saved my life.
