    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 10 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I started off with a low dose of 5mg, 2 times a day and after 3 days increased it to 10 as per the doctors instructions and the sadness I went through was so intense and constant for 1 day. I stayed in my room for 2 days because I needed to recover from the day of intense negative feelings. It wasn't normal.
