... first dose but I'm just really scared to do so. I'm scared that it'll make my depressive episodes worse (I've been prescribed it for bipolar disorder which was my diagnosis yesterday). I was prescribed zoloft with it. I'm overweight and I've been struggling to get my weight down and I'm really worried that this will make it even harder. I'm scared that it'll take away my creativity, I'm a photographer for a publishing company. I guess I'm really concerned about what side effects I'm going to have. What side effects do/did you have? Thanks!
