    Horrible medication. Dizzy, tiredness, scalp itching, Blood pressure goes up and down too quickly. Terrible ringing in the ears. Taking 300 mg 2x per day. Not worth taking and too many side effects. Seeing my Doctor today !

    I have been taking this medicine for fourth months now it works when I’m not under a lot of stress however it makes me have crazy thoughts and keeps my pressure kind of high sometimes . This is the safest medicine for breastfeeding, hoping to try something that won’t have me feeling depressed and hopeless as I have been feeling
