    I regret EVER taking this drug as it has completely ruined my life. I took 4 injections before I realized that emgality was causing all of these hellish effects on my body.

    I became severely depressed and anxious within a few days of taking the loading dose of two injections. That was on 1/28/2020. Now waiting for the drug to slowly clear my system so I can feel normal again.

    Loading dose caused severe abdominal pain and cramping. Effective on migraine. Next dose caused allergic reaction. Again effective. Dr said take w Benadryl. Next dose more allergic symptoms, fatigue, muscle/joint pain, depression. I'm done, not worth side effects.
