    Moderate

  • Burden

Dosage: 12.5 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Experiencing greater than normal suicidal thoughts again and just not sure if the medicine is causing this and also swelling and pain in my feet. Trying to get off as many meds as I can as my I seem to be intolerant of many meds and I can't tell if this is helping or hurting me. Plus it scares me to be taking so many meds. I only had professional samples - I never filled the script as I never had the money (have been out of work for 3 months since getting hte script and have had no money).
