  • Perceived effectiveness for Major Depressive Disorder: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Severe
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: Somewhat
Dosage: 10 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I first took this drug in 2003 following a major 4 year depressive episode. this drug helped me come back to life. I often had trouble taking it due to the sexual side effects and it often made me feel so good that i would quit taking it thinking i was "cured". I finally took it as prescribed but because of cost started missing doses. Was good medication just too costly for me and i think the affects were less the longer i took it.
Cost: $25-49 monthly
