  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for major depressive disorder)
  • Side effects
    Mild (Excessive daytime sleepiness (somnolence))
  • Adherence
  • Burden
    A little hard to take
Dosage: 10 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Ugh, the cherry taste (it's a sublingual med) is horrendous, though I was told the original unflavored was even worse. Hard to imagine! =) That said, it actually helps me sleep better than the trazadone because it doesn't seem to cause the bizarre lucid dreams that trazadone gives me.
Cost: < $25 monthly
