I was put on this medication because my max dose of Prozac stop working. I have suffered a lot of side effects like brain zaps, constant crying, strange dreams, vertigo, and weight gain. Now I'm afraid to go off it, but hate staying on it too. It's stopping me fro working, and being active. I feel like I'm living in a cave and am completely alone. I'm usually happy and get things done, but not when I'm on this crap. Right now, I've been on it for 4 months and am waiting to see my doctor so I know what to do going forward. If you don't have to then don't take this medication. I've tried others which didn't work so have to try this one. Also, make sure when on this medication, you take it exactly at the same time each day.
