I researched these when I was an inpatient at an eating disorder unit as the psychiatrist there wanted to swap my Zopiclone sleeping pills for this medication instead.

The supposed theory was that this medication would be better for my insomnia but it is also well known for causing weight gain so I refused to take it. Other than that I don't have any personal experience of it. It is an antidepressant but whether it is effective at lifting mood I don't know.
