once user on Jan, 2, 2015:
i found endep when i was taking it took me from mild depression to suicidal, i tried overdosing and ended up in a coma, as soon as i stopped taking it i found myself much better. endep i found invades your mind it's like you have no control. i was 31 years old at the time. after recently a finding out a friend was taking it and took her life recently i'd like to warn people of the dangers of it. speak with your doctor about a safer anti depressant. it's not like you have time to tell someone it just quickly takes over and before you know it your taking your own life and still to this day i'm very unsure about how it happened it was quick and everything was just so like i was not thinking for myself. this drug i believe should be taken of the market it is dangerous. once i was off the drug i regained myself and become much better
