    This was the best medicine I have taking in years. I was the happiest person, had energy, felt good, and even lost weight. I slept at night(which hasn't happened in years). I would recomend this drug to anyone, little spendy though. I had to stop taking it because it made my feet and ankles swell so bad my toes didn't touch the ground. Wish I could still take it havn't found anythi ... Show Full Comment

    Been on a variety of anti-depressants for many years - no luck. Had a hard time describing my symptons. Finally, I found something that really works. Been taking only 1 week, but have energy and want to get up in the morning and do something. I have read up on this and am afraid this causes weight gain. Don't want to gain weight! or having to stop this medication. Actually feeling younger!
