I have known some people who have taken this for various reasons over the years and have suggested it to me. Lately there is so much stress going on around here, with the kids and job issues, money issues, etc. etc. I'm having a hard time keeping my energy level up. I'm trying to lose weight, don't have the mental or physical energy to do much. I feel a real "who cares" and "why bother" kind of attitude lately and can't seem to shake it. I just feel like I'm treading water and it's getting harder and harder to keep my head above water. I don't want to be numbed out, just a little something to help me "fake it until I make it" type thing.

Please don't bash me, I'm genuinely looking for advice from people who have taken it or similar and their experiences good and bad. Not looking for you to tell me why this is a terrible idea if you have no experience or actual information about it. Thanks!!

I haven't taken it, but my ex-husband got put on it.  It was a savinggrace for him.  For the first time in his life he was functioning normally.  It was a little rough in the beginning getting his dosage correct, but once it was it was amazing the change in him.
