  • Perceived effectiveness for Depressed mood: Major
  • Perceived effectiveness for Major Depressive Disorder: Major
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 225 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Taking this medication has changed my life greatly. I went from wanting to literally kill myself to being able to smile and laugh with my family and friends again. I have smiled more since I have been on this medication than since I can really remember. The only bad part about the medication is some insurances do not cover it and it is very expensive. It can range from 50 dollars to well over 100. If you have any type of Medicaid you have to get a pre-authorization.
Cost: < $25 monthly
