  • Perceived effectiveness for Mood swings: Major
  • Perceived effectiveness for Generalized Anxiety Disorder: Slight
  • Perceived effectiveness for Social Anxiety Disorder: Slight
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 200 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I am very pleased with the overall results I have had since starting this medication. I had terrible mood swings, they were emotionally draining and damaging to myself and my family. After three weeks of treatment, we began to notice a significant lessening of the frequency of my mood swings. Now I find it much easier to remain clear-headed and level. I still have my bad days, but they are not regular now, they're just the odd bad day. :)
