I just wanna know how others got on with it and if it really did help them.. I know it's really early to say for me as it's only a week and I'm still being weening off citalopram 40mgs to 20mgs while taking 10mgs of paroxetine.. I know everyone is different... but how long did it take to proper kick and help with your thoughts! because I still dont feel great in myself and I still feel depressed and anxious!! I had a few days okayish then got emotional again in the morning yesterday.. cant tell if it's working or not... any advice would be better then nutthing!

    Hopefully it helps you, but I had to get off of it. I was having bad side effects by the second week. Night sweats and muscle twitching. I quit trying ssri's and switched to quetiapine. I break it up a 50mg tab into 4ths. I take a 4th of a tab when needed. Usually once or twice a day. I take half a tab at night to help sleep. Works immediatly, no waiting like paroxiten. On bad days I take .25 generic Xanax which is Alprazolam. Both allow me to function normally and run my company. Hope this helps, maybe you could try these if needed.
