Hi Roland

Thank you for the response.
Just to give you a little background...I live in Canada. My family doctor diagnosed me with depression. I was on Wellbutrin for almost two years but didn't help me whatsoever. The only noticeable effect was the weight loss.
My sister is a physician in Germany. After consulting with her, I stopped taking Wellbutrin. She strongly recommended Insidon (I guess it is a popular one in Germany).
I have been taking Insidon for two weeks now. I haven't notice anything but plenty of sleep. Unlike Wellbutrin, Insidon puts you in sleep like you won't believe!
I am not sure if I did a right thing by switching to Insidon...or maybe it is too soon to tell.

I would appreciate your comments especially on the side effects of Insidon.
