I haven't been sleeping and am supposed to try a low dose of it to fix that. I'm worried about feeling too tired (I'm tired already) and gaining weight. ugh. Any good/bad experiences?Thanks!

I take it- 200 mg I think. It does make me groggy to help me sleep. helps calm down my racing thoughts. I like it. Worked for me years ago so when I needed it again Dr thought it was a good place to start. It's been great for a couple years.

I'm only taking 50 mg. Dr said it probably won't cause weight gain at such a low dose. She better be right. If I start gaining, I will need to wean off :(

"Everyone's different" so idk. Most recently I was on 200- 300 mg. Years ago I was on 600 - 800. On my recent experience I gained 40 lbs. I am a healthy eater. Low carb organic vegetarian practically vegan.

It made me shake so bad that I couldn't peel boiled potatoes with a butter knife.

It gave me am a thesis so bad I couldn't take it. One dose done me in. That is not to say how it will work on you. My daughter took it and she liked it.

Not sure about this med.  Just remember no one posts good things about a med on web sites.  Just the bad stuff.  And everyone reacts different.  You may love it when some one else hates it.  Our bodies are so different.  That's why I am Melissa and not you.  Trying it for the first time can be the hardest part.

You're right. Than you! I started it last night and feel ok today, except for some withdrawal from my other med. (It's a low dose)
