Hi. I was taking FXR xr@ 300mg/day for about a year. The dry mouth never resolved but was a great motivator to drink lots a water. The dizziness I experienced went away after the first week. I took my meds in the a.m. & had very little problem with sleep, but when I did I found 1mg of Klonopin OR a dose of Ambien to take care of it.

Lithium has been shown to be effective as monotherapy for depression, but I would try the newer AD's with more benign side fx profiles before ever considering Lithium. Unless you have a difficult to treat condition I think FXR, or one of the SSRI's, should bring you relief. Hope this helps. Take care.

PS -Effexor xr was the only AD out of 7 I tried to resolve my treatment resistant depression.

> Hi i have just started taking effexor xr its the first anti depression medication i have tried, i have had side effects such as dizzyness and dry mouth and sleeplessness but i am hoping these will go away. i have been reading all of the above comments and trying to get a better understanding of the drug, if anyone has any more negative or positive feedback i would be very interested, also how successful is lithium in treating depression, is it an uplifter or a downer drug and is is dangerous??
