  • Perceived effectiveness for Treat my mood condition(s): Major
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 300 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I started this medication in January at an initial dose of 150mg a day. I experienced some mild shakiness that lasted for a few days and was then gone in less than a week. I just increased my dosage to 300mg/day and again I am experiencing the mild shakiness as before, but this time with a mild headache as well. My doctor prescribed this antidepressant because it is supposed to give you energy and that is exactly what I need. I found out it must work in that respect during a snowstorm when I could not get refills. Without it I was lethargic and slept most of the day.
Side effects: Shakiness, Borderline Hypomania, Headaches
