i think that effexor blocks both serotonin reuptake and norepinephrine reuptake, i do know they classify themselves as an SNRI (n for norepinephrine) but ask your doc if effexor also has SSRI properties. SSRI as a class do cause weight gain and sexual dysfunction in most individuals - so you may want to make sure you know what to expect. if you have low blood pressure then maybe effexor is an option for you but again i'd do alot of research on what this drug does and ask your doctor - the chemical name for effexor is venlafaxine - do a search on a drug database and see what the adverse reactions may be. if you have probls finding info let me know and i'll check it out for ya - may have to be till this weekend though since tomorrow i'm going to a 3 -day biz meeting out of town and wont have internet access :(
