  • Perceived effectiveness for Major Depressive Disorder: Slight
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 20 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: At first, I didn't think that I would be able to continue taking this medication the first 3 weeks was brutal insomnia, tired, and emotionally paralyzed at a constant state of depression. After the first month I started to feel very positive and the months to fallow were fine with mild jaw clenching and lowered libido. I've been taking this medication for some time now and I feel it is no longer helping me improve my depression, it has instead made me emotionally flattened. I do not feel especially happy or sad. I do not want to use a higher dose or another medicine to treat my depression, but instead I want to wean off and feel what it's like to not be emotionally flat again.
Side effects: Jaw clenching, Insomnia, Emotional numbness or flatness
