I will be starting this tomorrow morning and I would like to know what everyone's experience was with it. Did it make you tired? Did you feel wierd? Did you sleep better? Did it make you absent minded?
 
I appreciate all responses.

Zomese.

I took it for about 3 months in 2006. As a mood stabilizer it was not enough for me, but it helped with my sleep issues. I also took it night to cut down on side effects.

The only side effects I remember having were upset stomach and headaches for about a week or two. But they went away. Other than than I was fine.

Best wishes on your medicinal journey, I know there has been a lot of switches for you lately.

Thanks Olivia.
 
I took my first one this morning, I have to take it twice a day. My doctor said that if I get too tired during the day then I can take both doses at night like and hour or two apart from each other.
 
I usually get a really bad panic attack when I start a new med but so far so good. No panic attack yet.
 
I always look forward to your responses because I think you and I seem to be similar in what we go through. I think you've tried all the medicines my doctors have put me on too. They keep giving me things for my anger/agitation, but nothing yet for my OCD or depression. Although my depression seems to follow the anger, maybe if they control one the other will get better?
 
I'm hoping this medicine works. I'm very optimistic. I'm so happy to hear it has minimal side effects.
