    the first week I felt a llt better, then noticed spells of anxiety and general "BAD" feeling. I finally was able to sleep at night but I am tired all day. Have only been taking it 4 three1/2 weeks but ive lost 7 pounds. Less overall cying but when I feel that bad feeling crying is more intense. Best affect is being able to sleep at night even though i am tired during the day

    Medication has helped me recapture the overall feeling of well-being with daily life. Although, I have experienced minimal body swelling as the only side-effect.
