As far a depression, this drug is good. However, the nurse thought I was ridiculous when I told her I had gained 12 lbs in a week.

Comment:
I took this medication for about a year at the age of 12. I rapidly gained weight, which added to my depression. In total, I gained 30 pounds. As soon as i stopped the meds i lost all the weight, but with stretch marks to show for it. I wouldn't recommend this drug for anyone!!
