> Bruce, Peter, I'm coming up on 4 weeks on rebox, and I haven't had the constipation problem at all.
> I started out at 4 mg a day, and there were some really intense side effects - slow painful urination, impotence, racing thoughts. I was energized but unfocused, a little disoriented. It was overwhelming.
> I cut back to 2 mg a day as soon as I saw Bruce's first posting two weeks ago. (What dose are you doing, Peter?)
> The side effects eased up immediately. Like Bruce, I still pee slow, but it's not painful like it was. Sex could be better, but it's not impossible, as it was at 4 mg. I hope all that doesn't return when I go back to 4 mg. I'm thinking another week at 2 mg.
> What about you, Bruce? When are you going to 4 mg?
> Good luck

Good to hear from you, Luke.

I doubt that I will go up to 4mg BID. The half dose is plenty energizing for me, and the side effects are tolerable, although I dislike the urinary dysfunction. I also seem to have retrograde ejaculation (it barely flows out). Insomnia once in awhile also occurs.

As for the antidepressant effect, I have noticed that I simply don't dwell on negative thoughts anymore, and I'm not as cynical as before. It is a different feel altogether than Prozac, but effective in it's own right.

I must say, though, the energizing effect is for real.
