    Meds affect people differently so I can only offer my experience. If i recall it is a SNRI and suffered palpitations and increase heart rate to point where i felt l was having a panic attack. Plus, I had the "normal" side effects that come with psych meds like nausea, dry mouth, etc..

    If you are eve unsure of the side effects of the drugs you take, your prescribing doc is the best person to ask as they should know or otherwise the pharmacist.

    good luck with it and hope it works for you =)
