Advice & Tips: I can really see why addiction/dependence is a risk with this drug. maybe more so than any other med I've had. I'm not one who gets addicted or dependent on medication but for those with less restraint than I, be warned. Also, it stopped being effective for me after a few months and increasing dose doesn't help.
