    One day on this drug and it made me hate my life. I didn't even leave the car. I couldn't I felt so depressed, no motivation I could go on and on. I felt numb. Not even looking at my kids gave me a smile! I love to laugh, I'm the life of the party. This drug sucks!! I will never take again!! Not alone not with an antidepressant and not less Mg it's done!!!
