I have no idea how it would be abusable? It's an SSNRI; abuse would cause serotonin syndrome. If it is the wrong medication for you, you really shouldn't be taking it. I have a friend who took just one of my anti-psychotic pills; wigged out for days. Lesson learned; he will not touch a pill not prescribed for him again.

Yes its NE inhibiting action makes it popular in the prison system, serotonin syndrome is rare and more 5HT inhibiting drugs like Lexapro are Rx'd up to 40mgs 20mgs over the max recommended dose and they can be on something like Cyproheptadine that blocks 5HT
