> Have you read about pindolol-a beta blocker on psych. tips. It might help, or inderal. I'm having the same probs. as Racer no appetie on Effexor and profound fatigue. I'm gonna maybe try asking doc to add a little Remeron to boost appetite. Hope this helps. Paul

Just my 2 cents on the Remeron: I just gave it a try, and it definitely boosted my appetite HUGELY at the lower doseage. The other side effect, though, which really affected my decision to switch meds yet again, was that it really knocked me out, regardless of dose. So if you're already experiencing fatigue, Remeron might not be the best choice, although I must say the higher dose wasn't nearly as bad. I don't remember Effexor making me tired, though--in fact, it made me feel like I was on speed or something. Good luck!
