From this study (3 weeks ago):
This drug does not help a person with social anxiety and or panic disorder. I was tired for the first couple of days but couldn't sleep due to restless leg. Now, after three weeks of taking it, I'm up til 2am. Does not help me sleep. I feel restless and tired/awake.
From this study (1 month ago):
Minor activity using my muscles , the pain level is extreme, it takes 2 days to recover.
From this study (1 month ago):
Suicide idiation was reported to medical people some six months ago but nothing was done and the medicine was continued despite talk of suicide increasing.
Nicole on Jul, 24, 2014:
55 year old male,took his life after taking medication for about 3-4 months. In his total 30 plus years of taking Anti psychotic medications, has he ever,never displayed a history of self mutilation, or thoughts of suicide. Lots of questions regarding if his doctor made clear the side effects, or if followed up with blood work was done. Very, very angry and grieving my uncle's death. This will not be another stat for study purposes. It will be for change. And accountability.

I had severe almost convulsing tremors, I made myself throw up the medication and the tremors subsided. My body feels really sore from the intensity of the tremors but I feel a lot better. I won't continue taking this medication, it was a nightmare.
