Advice & Tips: This is a medication that my psychiatrist prescribed in conjunction with the Effexor XR to stabilize my mood. Because it also has a sedating effect on me it also helps with my insomnia. The only burden of this medication for me is the cost (I don't have any insurance right now). I'm definitely paying for a brand name because there aren't any generic equivalents available yet.
Cost: $200+ monthly
Side effects: weight gain
