I took it years ago.
Its a pretty typical anti-depressant. One of the most common reasons its given is that it doesn't have some of the side effects that others have (weight gain, loss of sex drive.)
If you start taking it, you need to give it a good 4 to 6 weeks before it really starts taking effect.
BUT - I think I felt a bit of a placebo effect when I started it.
But also for me - it didn't seem effective for long. It probably helped me for a year or so.
Is this what you're looking for? Let me know...
