I had PAINFUL leg cramps after taking this drug for only 1 week. You could literally SEE the muscles in my legs tighten and twist. I stopped taking it before any other significant side effects were noticed.

My doc put me on this medication for my depression, in addition to the 200mg of Zoloft I was on, to help me stop smoking. I was smoking almost a pack a day, and my lungs started to get real bad..
