Aug 1, 2013 (Started Nov 18, 2011)

  • Perceived effectiveness for Depression with anxiety: None
  • Perceived effectiveness for Generalized Anxiety Disorder: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: A little
Dosage: 20 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: For me, it seemed to work to alleviate my panic attacks, but I'm not sure it helped with depression. I also think it made me prone to rare, but serious dark panic attacks. The sexual side-effects were moderate and would be worth it for bad anxiety or if it helped with depression. I stopped once I got to a place where external stress factors had significantly lessened.
Cost: < $25 monthly

  • Perceived effectiveness for Generalized Anxiety Disorder: Major
  • Perceived effectiveness for Depression with anxiety: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 30 mg Daily
Cost: < $25 monthly

Dec 13, 2011 (Started Nov 18, 2011)

  • Perceived effectiveness for Generalized Anxiety Disorder: Slight
  • Perceived effectiveness for Depression with anxiety: Slight
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 10 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: My side effects started immediately with the 10 mg/day dose, but had mostly subsided by the time I upped my dose to 20 mg / day. So, the side effects seemed to be transient. In contrast, the benefits have been growing on a much longer time scale, probably taking several weeks to notice a benefit for depression and GAD.
Cost: < $25 monthly
