it is an interesting new medicine. it has SSRI properties like zoloft to some degree but also manipulates serotonin by turning on or off other brain receptors.... so it is unique and different. It doesnt mean it is better, just different and sometimes it works better for one person and not the other. its side effects are similar to other mainstream antidepressants
