Hi Everybody!

First of all: sorry for mi English. I decided to share my own experience about two years on Effexor XR. I've been suffering depression and anxiety for about 18 years. I was obssesive about suicide for all this time. I felt there was something missing in my brain. Obviously: serotonin. Every night I was thinking on death. After a severe emotional crisis I was prescribed with Effexor XR.

I improved so much. I felt I was almost normal. I didn't think about death anymore. But... After 2 years I am considering quit off Effexor XR because I am so depressed again: I gained 23 pounds and I hate myself for it. I can't stop eating. I starve for candies and bread. I'm an obssesive person about weight because I had lost 35 pounds over 2 years and I was proud about my look because I was so fatty. It was a great sacrifice and now I can't keep any diet.

By another hand, I'm tired because sometimes I'm crying like an histeric crazy and when I get angry to my boyfriend I'm afraid about it because I feel so, so bad. I can't control myself. I become an horrible rude person. That's not me !!!!.... I can't stop to blame him. Too much obsessive. I hate myself to be so rude and stupid but I can't control this feeling. It's hard to live like this.

Another withdrawal effects: It's funny: sometimes I forget to take my dosis because I feel so fine but I noticed it because I feel so dizzy or I had headache. At night: my jaw is tight. Sometimes I wake up: I'm sweating. I can stand anything except overweight and that mood of anger.

I don't know what is going to be with me. I simply don't know. I don't like to take medicines all my life. I hate that idea. But I'm sure I'm a depressive person and I need help to deal with this.
