>How hard is it on the liver?
You are supposed to have your liver enzymes checked. Mine were OK. It has this terrible taste. Not bitter or anything....just like you should not be consuming it. I know this because I experimented with taking it under the tongue.
>How good was it for your sleep?
Very good at first. Not at 25mg though. My first dose was 25mg and I woke after an hour and that was it for the night. It felt something like a smart drug to begin with. I continued with half a tablet a day and it was very good. After a couple of months I pushed it to 25mg/d which was a mistake for me. It gave me significant afternoon anxiety which eventually dissipated. Over time the melatonergic effect became less obvious and I felt it was not helping my sleep at all. It is naturally bad anyway.
>How did the 5-HT2C blocking affect you?
Something of a dopaminergic feel, sex and so on. And that afternoon anxiety I mentioned
