It worked for years, then didn't.

Tried, did not like
Working / Worked
Did not work, took it for over 2 years. Bad withdrawal.
Worked with the mix of Abilify but I got tired of being on meds. The combo of the two made me gain a ton of weight. Plus medicine got pricey. I didnt want to be on meds anymore and felt a lot better being off them.
Working / Worked
Worked well to reduce depression, but side effects made me unable to continue using: pain and inflammation in joints. Started at 20 mg, doc upped to 40 mg resulted in dystonic reaction. Weaned self off. A nightmare.
Working / Worked
There hasn't been any bad side effects for me.
Working / Worked
Works REALLY well mentally. However the side effects are really bad :/
Not sure if I was put on this medication. Sounds familiar.
