Alchohol and AD

Posted by TimmieC. on August 23, 1999, at 1:08:18

I've just started taking Effexor XR 75mg. a day for depression. I've just started my second yr. at a university and my first was tough on me. I've never been a big drinker but fell into the habit of drinking socially almost every night with friends and neglecting most of my schoolwork. My parents noticed the change in me this summer and wanted me to see a doc, so I went and was given a script for effexor. I've been taking it for about a month now and while I do notice an improvement in my mood the side effects are almost too much. I have lost my ability to orgasm and desire to have sex is non-existant, and I've noticed that whenever I do have a couple of drinks I wake up the next morning with a splitting headache that usually lasts throughout the day. I need to find a alternative to this med or I think I'm going to quit as it is interfering more with my ability to enjoy life than it is helping. If anyone here could give me any suggestions to bring to my doctor I would be very grateful, Thanks.
