My doctor just prescribed this for me to help with slight depression and hopefully a lot of weight loss! I am also taking lorazepam - 1mg 4x/day. I have been trying meds for menopausal symptoms, also - just the usual suspects, i.e., hot flashes, irritability and sleeplessness. Also suffer with migraines and some insomnia anyway and have since I was a young girl.

I was on Lamictal (which I LOVED), but I had a bad rash show up & they took me off of it immediately due to elevated risks for Stevens-Johnson syndrome.

That was years ago, and I've since been diagnosed with Lupus, which btw, was the reason for the horrible rash. Still, nothing works the way it should in my system - I ALWAYS tend to get WIRED on everything I try!

Help please!
