Yes, at first there were terrible side effects (nausea, headache, even worse depression). However, all side effects disappeared during the first 2 weeks. And indeed, everyone. I must confess I only take 10 milligrams a day. The effect is very good throughout.

I thank the people who invented this drug! I know fluoxetine by the way (also) from my youth. It helped very well there. However, I had taken there in places up to 60 mg / day and of course I had side effects (night sweats like dumb, weight gain, Dauerzittern). You should not take so much of it.

The suicidality, for which the Medikamnet after research, is very notorious, I was, of course, concealed …
