Ideally, I'd like this med to cure all those little problems: depression, apathy, social phobia, suicidal thoughts, sleeping far too much, inability to plan ahead or care much.

For me, this med is unusual in that after a day or two of sleepiness, I'm having trouble falling asleep...which at this point is a nice change. I've only been on it a week and I'm only taking 20mg one time a day. It is very expensive...$350.00 for 60 pills. I take other meds. If this alertness continues, I may discontinue my meds for hypersomnia: provigil, concerta and ritalin. I take klonopin for anxiety and social phobia...I might take it at bedtime if I feel I'm developing insomnia.

As for my moods and anxiety, it is too early to tell. Nothing bad. I'm fairly good right now but that may be placebo effect or coincidence.

As for other side effects, it may be causing mild muscle cramping (a few times a day); technically, this is called dystonia when it worsens and it tends to be more of a problem with this med...but so far at this very low dose, I wouldn't even call it a problem.
