> 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.

Wen, I must tell you that if your depression is life-threatening, Effexor will save you. It is not a lightweight treatment for depression. If your depression is serious, it will work and it will be worth the wait through the initial side effects. If your depression is less than life-threatening, then you may consider asking your p-doc for a gentler treatment. Down the road, re-entry to the world after treatment is difficult when you are speaking of Effexor. But, if it is the way to save your life -- hold on! You will find it a source of stregnth. Are you seeing a psychiatrist? maureen
