    I loved that it gave me the energy to get mo I have. Including getting out of the house and doing things. It I was like the dark cloud was gone. But , now having shopping problems spending money all the time, more OCD with cleaning organizing and am washing my hands now gone back to wear white gloves all day.

    I think I got hit with every side effect: irritability, weight gain, anxiety, tired but can't sleep, binge shopping, etc. The anxiety got so bad I couldn't concentrate enough to work, so I'm not taking it anymore. I'll take the depression over these side effects any day.
