I have been on Effexor (75mg/day)for the last three years.
I have experienced several manic episodes when Lexell
(BP med) was taken with it. Especially at 150mg. I have
noticed that I am a great deal more reactive to caffein.
Over the last 18 months I have experienced severe headaches,
muscle spasms, noises in my ears. I spent a great deal of
time chasing down a problem with a pinched nerve that may
have been a side effect of Effexor. I also noticed a more
increased tendancy towards a decline in my inhibitions and
increased obsessive/compulsive behavior.I started having
severe problems sleeping and a total loss of interest
in every day activities. My Dr. wants to move me over to
Prozac, but after feeling the changes in moods and swinging between
bliss and anger I have decided (with monitoring)
to completely clean out my system. Effexor was orignally precribed
for depression related to cessation of alcohol
consumption. I have been sober for three years now and
maybe my system has changed.
