 4  Headaches and anxiety Extreme fatigue, deep sleep that was hard to wake up from, dry mouth, weight gain. It took 3 months to start helping my anxiety; it did not help my tension headaches. I gained 20 pounds while on it and the headaches continued so I got off of it. Currently looking into other options for anxiety. I am experiencing mild withdrawal such as sleep disturbances, hot flashes and dizziness. F 27 9 months

 3  Fibromyalgia Dry mouth, anxiety, uncontrollable shaking, irritability, moody Really disappointed that I could not continue this medication. The day after my first bedtime dose I woke up shaking and could not stop crying the entire day. Second day I was worse and very irritable with high anxiety. Third day I missed work due to panic and the shaking. The medicine did help relieve my pain but just was not something my system could tolerate. If you can tolerate it I recommend giving it a go for fibro pain. Every medicine is different for everyone. I am on to Neurontin now and hope to have better luck with that. F 46 5 days

 4  depression, insomnia None yet So far so good Read about 150 posts by others Which made me hesitate to take it. It appears young folks (20 and under) get sick off it. this medicine is for someone Who has tried just about every rX out there with limited relief. I sleep all through the nite (had To get up 3-4 times a nite to pee Before. No crazy dreams or sleep Driving as reported by others. Had What I thought was a nervous stomach which this med seemed to fix. Feel more relaxed and in control. Before would lay in bed all day with frequent crying bouts. I take strong pain meds which after 10 years hardly worked. This med Helps with that too. Concerned About weight gain and claims that It is highly addictive. I will Keep taking until side effects Show up. This is a love it or hate it drug. Also helps add and ptsd. M 60 1 days

 3  Anxiety,depression Dry mouth. Groggy in the morning. I took this drug as a teenager for anxiety and it worked a treat. This time round I don't feel any relief. Although I on a low dose to start and its early days so I guess I need to be patient. It does help my back pain and I'm slightly less stressed. F 34 3 months

 1  Sleep Problems Made me sleepy. Made me feel nervous during the next day. I only took this as I couldn't get my doxepin I usually take for sleep. It does make you drowsy like doxepin but has effects on serotonin that can make you feel paranoid. Avoid if you have any tendency to psychosis or severe anxiety. M 50 3 days
