Older antidepressant, caused some weight gain, but is a tried and true intervention that more experienced psychiatrists love to use. I would recommend this med to anyone. Helped me sleep, raised my mood, put color back into my life, helped significantly lower anxiety level.

I've been on this drug for 2 months, and my depression is much less severe. I no longer think of suicide or end up in bed for days paraylsed with depression. I thought I would get lots of side effects from this older anti-dep. The only side thing was some tiredness during the day at the start of the treatment, but that only lasted a few days.

This is a great to help you sleep by it made me so angry. I would snap at everyone for the slightest thing. Going bact to taking my Effexor. This pill is not worth being mad all the time. The weight gain was awful too.

I've taken Sinequan for over 20 years with no ill effects. I suffered from severe panic attacks and muscle aches which affected my life dramatically. I have had a normal life since taking this medication. I only take 25mg. a night. On occasion I try to reduce the dosage or go off it but always come back to the 25mg.It works for me.

I was prescribed Sinequan for severe anxiety/panic attacks and depression. It has helped me tremendously. I am no longer a prisoner to my bedroom and home. I have gained 30 pounds since starting the med (2 years ago).

I was given this medication as a teenager (I am 31 now) and it caused SEVERE hallucinations. The Neurologist I was seeing for severe migraines prescribed this as a daily medication to try and break the cycle of migraines I was having. (Migraines run in my family) It caused me to feel like I was losing my mind. I woke during the night feeling like my bed was spinning and I was hearing voices. I would not tell anyone to take this medication and I am glad I have found a place to post my experience with it.
