      I’m currently weaning off of them because they’ve made me CONSTANTLY hungry and slowed my metabolism down making me gain 15-20 pounds. It also didn’t really help my depression or anxiety.

      It helped me with my anxiety, but I gained more than a few pounds with that drug, so I asked my doctor to switch to another one.

      Ok I take mine at night I still have energy to workout and make it through work but the side effects are terrible how long did it take for them to go away?

      I currently take 20 mg a day at night to help with energy levels. If I take it during the day I stay so sleepy. I find that it helps me stay calm and mutes the anxiety/stress that would normally be there. I still feel it but it's definitely not as crazy/overwhelming. I've been taking it for seven years now and I am grateful for it.

      I'm currently on 30 MG which is a large dose. It has improved my mood but no effect on my energy which is what I really need.
