Thank you for your question and welcome to


The most common side effects are: drowsiness, dizziness, blurred vision, muscle pain, change in hair growth or loss of hair, change in sexual desire, weight change, increased saliva production, sore gums, or cough. Many people take this medication without experiencing side effects or experiencing only mild side effects. Frequently, side effects will disappear after a few weeks of use.


As far as how long you should take this medication, you should have this discussion with your physician. Together you would be able to decide how long you should take it.

hi aileen, well i completely understand what u are trying to say and i have different side effects of it, originally it use to relax me and give me calmness and i use to sleep but now, it makes me restless and more hyper at times, and over react, well would like to advise u one thing if u listen to me i would really appreciate , this is one table i would not like my enemy also to be addicted to , ur brain ur memory , ur strength of thinking is gone , initially we are getting relaxed u gave 18 months, i have given almost 6 yrs now, and the bottom line is i have forgotten my most of the memories and its affecting my memory , i am forgetting all the short term memory and cant remember numbers, or things , its becoming difficut,. so my advise is leave it. u can leave it instantly, but from zap 2mg cut down to zap 0.5mg, as that is better , i would not suggest u zap 1 mg as that is u wil become resltess , so half of it is zap 0.5 its the mildest dose, try it for 2 days and u wil see the difference this is how i reduced it , if i can u surely also can, i use to take zap 2 mg , around 20 tablets in a day now i am just taking one a day, and its all my will issue, and just the fact that one fine day i dont want to forget completely who i am , SO JUST TRY THIS AND LET ME KNOW I AM THERE TO HELP U AND GUIDE U , AS I REALLY WANT U TO COME OUT OF IT , PROMISE ME WE CAN STILL FIGHT , WE HAVE THE WILL , ITS JUST WE HAVE TO IMPLEMENT AND WE ARE MCH MORE STRONGER THAN THE WORLD....SO DO IT, I HOPE U WILL TRY FOR ME,. I WILL WAIT FOR UR REPLY ....
