Advice & Tips: I ramped up slowly on this medication and found an increase in abdominal pain and frequency of migraines (which I already suffered from) most likely because the bouts of constipation were followed by diarrhea. And coming down slowly I noticed a reduction in those symptom. However, rather quickly on the drug I noticed a reduction in anxiety although only a slight improvement in depression.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: Abdominal pain, Brain fog, Constipation, Sex drive (libido) decreased, Sweating increased
