Without going in to too much detail about myself, I would like to give a review on this medication. Within in about a week of being diagnosed with depression I was already starting to feel different. I was originally started on one 50mg capsule per day but then the dosage was increased to one 100mg capsule per day. About a week later and I was doing 150% better. My husband told me and still does say that the change in me is "as different as night and day." I never realized how much I needed a SSRI until now. Looking back a couple of months and I realize now how unstable and moody I really was. I feel much more in control of my moods now. I haven't had any side effects and the medication doesn't even make me drowsy. Drowsiness is the most common side effect, however, so I think it's just a fluke that I'm not affected.
