I had insomnia for nearly two weeks, although I didn't experience any paranoia or rage. I also experienced restless legs while on this.

Comment:
I was taking Deplin for depression. Don't know if it helped or not. Just the thought of taking something that could help me feel better, helped me feel a little brighter. Placebo effect? Don't know. Outrageously expensive. Had to pay $376.00 for a 3 month supply, and that was WITH a PDR card discount. I can't afford that, again. Tasted like fish oil to me. Decided to just take ...
