I swear by it JD... having tried several other anti d's it rally worked for my depression and anxiety. The psych I saw also swore by it as being a really effective drug though am glad it is being combined with therepy. I titrated up to nearly the maximum dose. I ve been told I need to stay on it for 12-18 post stbalising but I had very few side effects and what side affects I did have subsided quickly
