> I haven't taken it recently. Tried it twice in about 5 years.... the first time not on anything else, the second time hoping to use it to get off klonopin. Both times was 2.5 mg, one dose in the evening. Both times after about 90 minutes I would feel out of it and anxious, a little lightheaded or just off.

It is one of those meds that breaks down into other metaboites that may have very different actions than the parent drug and can be quite confusing due to that. I noticed that with Wellbutrin as well. With WB I *always* feel a positive improvement the *first few hours* I take it. Later in the day the metabolites start to dominate and I feel agitated and crappy feeling.
