Side Effects
I continued to feel depressed as before after about 3 months of 20 mg twice a day. I also noticed a strange crazy obsessive feeling, kind of like restlessness but in my head as opposed to my body needing to move around. It's hard to explain but I didn't like the feeling so I slowly weaned myself off the drug. Then the depression got worse and now I'm working with my doctor more closely to regulate the dosage and the side-effects.
