Just started this (been on it 5 days or so). Was on 50mg for the first 2, upped this to twice daily for 2, and today when I woke I decided to see what 100mg would do.

The higher dose has induced a feeling of calm, fatigue, drunkenness (minus euphoria) and stupidity lol. Atm it is acting like a sedative, but, it seems I am unable to perform OCD rumination on it. This alone could be incredibly useful.

I plan to take it for a good few weeks, and observe its efficacy for various things. The side effects atm aren't awful like with most antidepressants, its just mostly sedation so its not going to be a problem for me to give it a decent trial.
