Have been on this medication for about 20 yrs. now. It worked on day one for me - noticed an immediate change. For that reason, I've never considered changing. I did experience weight gain (which for females is kind of depressing on it's own). I definately experienced loss of libido and that's been disturbing to me. It is for these reasons that I'm considering changing to another anti-depressant. ...

I took this medication for 3 months and went crazy! it made me so angry that i was punching walls, yelling at my family, kicking doors and just a complete asshole! This medication did not help the depression, made it ten times worse! I advised my dr and she threatened to commit me if i stopped using it! i stopped anyway and was fine! HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE!

This med did work well for me with my panic attacks and social anxiety. Still there there, but not as extreme. At leaset I can talk one on one with a stranger...Took about a week to take effect.

It is for these reasons that I'm considering changing to another anti-depressant. But this will work!
