Bob, I don't know what to tell you. Effexor works better for me that Prozac, Paxil, or Wellbutrin, if only because I tolerate it better. But there is still: sexual dysfunction, sleeplessness, motoric "twitches" (myoclonus) and at higher doses, word retrieval problems. Regular effexor also caused buckets of sweat, from my head of all places. And yep, I am on a boatload of meds, effexor plus augmentors (Serzone, ritalin, synthroid, and cytomel). My doc talks about going to either lithium or an anticonvulsnant next, if needed, although I think he would prefer I try an MAOI, which I am loathe to do because of fears about what I would do if I have a cold and can't take decongestants (remember, I am dependant on the nasal CPAP machine to sleep, and having the ability to sleep without starving my brain of oxygen is something that once accomplished, I am loathe to risk losing again). There are long threads above about some of the MAOIs that you probably should check out, as well as those on neurontin and lamictal as augmentors to ADs. BTW, you are under a lot of stress right now. Job, relationship, etc. Also BTW, that was one damn long episode of labor for the mama that bore us separated at birth conjoined brains--something like 4 years or so, no??? Even more BTW, when our conjoined brains were separated, I think you got the assertive side. Been looking for it all these years.....
