This drug did not help at all. Made me very drowsy, tired and contributed to anxiety. It did not solve my depression. I lost weight when it said I would gain it back. Not happy with this drug.

Comment:
Oh my! I have to be honest and say I only took this drug for a few days. I stopped right away after I found myself not being able to sleep very well, waking from sleep or a nap with my heart pounding against my chest; being extremely short of breath. It gave me panic attacks, which only exacerbated my shortness of breath and heartbeat. I had read a great deal of the reviews on here, and thought Y ... Show Full Comment
