Sheilac,

Thank you for posting this. I was beginning to lose all hope. I will stick with it for a little longer. I wished it zonked me out. It doesn't make me sleepy at all. How long did it take for it to work? My doctor said it's supposed to be super fast. I've been on it two weeks at 20mg but my mood has begun to change for the worse so I upped the dosage to 40mg. We'll see how this works. My dx is MDD and GAD. Wish you continued improvement.
