Hi, My son, who is now 14 has taken it for 2 years at a very low dose - but he has had no obvious side effects, even in the first week - for him it helps him sleep better and he gets less agitated - in fact, he tried stopping it earlier this year, and started getting very agitated again - I know it doesn't have such a positive effect for everyone, but for him it helps.

That stuff did not work on me. Its an antipsychotic, which made me psychotic. Quite contradictory when I am not even psychotic and know when I am. We all react to things differently. what helps me is an Antidepressant and Beta Blocker that calms me down
