started at a high dose (200mg the first nite)...was pf the first nite...stayed pf for months...then I noticed I started having major mood swings and really bad depression...I got suicidal from the stuff...I was very sensitive to it though. Alot of folks tolerate it and are pf with it. Barb D. has been on it for years and does better on it than I did...As far as the weight loss, my neuro told me his nurses were taking his samples as it is the new weight loss drug LOL....but with me, I gained weight on it LMAO...but that was from the depression...Again, there are alot of folks that have not had this problem and it works great for them..May have been that I was started on such a high dose at first and stayed on a high dose..who knows?.Do you need it for migraines or chs? A young lady that emails me alot has migraines and she is on it...Good me anytime...smiles,nancyc
