> do you have any sleep problems or other side effects?

That is the one problem I do have, sleep. Basically, for that, I just remove the patch at night and go to bed. Otherwise, my mind is over-active. I did try the 1/2 patch approach for the entire 24 hours x 5 days, just to see what it felt like, and there is really not a sleep issue with that amount, while with the 9mg/30cm2 patch, its more of an issue. But for myself, the 1/2 patch was not as effective as the 6mg/20cm2 or 9mg/30cm2.

Nevertheless, this is the first antidepressant that's worked for me beyond the "hey something feels different" hopeful placebo phase. Sleep management hasn't been the easiest (but at least its possible due to the transdermal application).

I find it quite interesting that the positive responses vary from 3mg up to 12mg (1/2 patch 6mg patch up to 12mg patch).
