    doctors got me on it.

    is it worth it? Anyone use it? I'm afraid of gaining weight with it and have sexual side effects.

    I don't think I had permanent side effects.
    It didn't help me a WHOLE lot... but it was the most effective thing I took. Kinda of made me less into sex, I'm 25 now and still pretty viral, but not as much as I was when I was 21 or so.
    Just don't miss doses, you will crash and feel strange for a day after.

    thank you for the advice. But can i ask u some more questions.

    So your off it now but didn't get your full sex drive back?

    What else have you taken?

    what exactly did it help you with?

    And did you gain weight?

    Gaining weight and having your dick not work right is enough to make me more depressed.

    I gained no weight. I'm not sure if I got my full sex drive back or not. I feel different than when I was 21 though. It kind of made me less depressed? a little... but I quit using it and on reflection, I felt the same throughout it all. When bad things happened, I felt down and couldn't really feel good for a long time. I've taken paxil and zoloft, neither of those helped.

    I love it. Take 60 mg per day, as does Mr. Man and have had no sexual side effects, no weight gain, no negatives at all. I was prescribed it after my complete hysterectomy (despite the HRT) and it did the trick.

    I didn't have any weight gain or loss but it made me incredibly depressed. I would sit on the couch all day and have crying spells. My sex drive decreased but that could've been for being so depressed and not wanting to do anything. Needless to say, I went off of it after a couple weeks.

    can I ask you this question?

    why would you just jump on any doctor prescribed medication without even researching it first? that does not seem wise IMO
