  • Effectiveness
    Slight (for Treat my mood condition(s))
  • Effectiveness
    Can't tell (for anxious mood)
  • Side effects
    Mild (drowsiness)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 50 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I take 50mg once a day and I don't know how to tell if it's working. All it does is make me really sleepy I guess. Also, I don't feel like doing much of anything since I've been taking this, but it hasn't been that long yet, so I'm not too worried about that, maybe the side effects will go away. I've felt a little happier the past few days, so maybe I can attribute that to this drug. I'm somewhat apathatic, I've found.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: urinary retention, drowsiness

If anything I think I'm snacking more often. No side effects at all, unless you count the withdrawal on missed days. Sex is even enjoyed and anticipated again!
