I take this for depression and sleep issues. It definitely helps with the sleep. The full dose (50mg) is very strong, I quickly went back down to 25mg. The trick is timing the dose, if you take it too late at night, too close to bed, you will wake up drowsy, and it can through your day out. I can't speak much to the anti-depressive effect. The fact that it helps with sleep definitely will impact mood, and the fact that it can make you lethargic and drowsy can also impact your mood. Overall it's ok, I haven't had the more unpleasnt side effects of some other anti-depressants. It's a relatively expensive drug in Australia, especially if you take 50mg per day.
