    I take 6mg/25mg 3 hrs before bedtime and it helps me sleep at night. At first it helped keep my mood swings under control 3 months or more now its not working so much... but am still sleeping well at night. Insurance wouldn't cover it so it cost about 400$ a month!! I also have went from 112 pounds to now 5-6 months later 150 pounds!

I've been diagnosed with both Bipolar depression (manic depression) and Major depressive disorders. As you can imagine, I have had my fair share of roller coaster ups and downs of life and have been through countless medications. However, I am AMAZED at how well I feel/am/perform with this med ...
