Switching from Effexor XR to Effexor

Posted by Pamela Kopeschka on October 25, 2000, at 12:54:49

Has anyone had to switch from the timed release Effexor XR to
Effexor? I had to since I get my meds from Hospital Dr.
here free through Patient's Assistance Program since I cannot
afford the expensive drug, Effexor. I do not have insurance.

They made a mistake and ordered the wrong thing so now I am
switched to regular Effexor and this seems to have caused a problem.
Got bad headaches and just feel strange - kinda spaced out.

Effexor XR helped my tension headaches, depression, and panic attacks.
So now I am bummed, since I started having the headaches again.
I started the switch about 2 or 3 days ago. I have taken Effexor XR since
July 99.

Can anyone tell me if this is a common problem?
