I have to second Kristi's point here -- I have a horrible time with SSRI side effects, and I had an even WORSE time with Effexor.

I'd say don't waste your time going with Effexor -- at least not until you've given some others a try.

good luck,

> > Oh.... definately don't start with effexor. There are so many side effects and it's just awful to come off of. Even doctors and pharmacists are finally admitting this now. My doctor won't even prescribe it.... and a friend of mines husband is a pharmacist, and he says he cringes everytime he receives a script for it. You know yourself best tho, do what you think is right for yourself. Good luck, Kristi
> For some people, yes. For others, like myself, there are no side effects. Some of the problems people associate with Effexor are due to underdosing. Low doses can equal a high level of side effects, not to mention leaving the depression untouched.
