> *I have non-psychotic unipolar depression, and it worked for me in 9 days (this is because it works on serotonin and norepinephrine like venlafaxine).
> *It has moderate dry mouth.
> *No drowsiness.
> *It can be taken with any medication except for MAOI's.
> *It doesn't cause weight gain like its relatives Risperdal, Zyprexa, or Seroquel (I've taken them all too).
> The downside:
> *Its horrifically expensive. 60 of the 40mg tablets costs $400 (US). That isn't even enough for a whole month either. You would have to have your doctor call the pharmacist to get this covered by insurance.
> *It could cause mania if you are bipolar.
> *Its not good for people with heart problems.
