Completely changed my life. After five years of trying to get over a traumatic event I was desperate for relief and against taking anything. My doctor talked me into it and I am just happy again I am able to put things into perspective and I am calm. I have been taking it for 6 months and hope to keep taking it.

I used this drug for 9 years on and off and it worked great. Just tried taking it again, both the generic and the name brand, with horrible effects. It caused worse depression and anxiety. Wish it could have been the drug that worked again, but it made things worse.
