Advice & Tips: This medication helped me more with my depression than any other medication evry has. However, it basically stopped my metabolism in its tracks, and i was only 16 at the time. I gained at least 40 pounds in around 2 months withput changing anything else in my life. Unfortunately, this ended up mking me more upset in the long run so I discontinued this medication.
