Hi Galtin,
I understand your point, and agree that Effexor has helped many people ... my concern here is that Scott has had such a hard time with SSRIs ... Effexor does have some SSRI properties, and I believe that if someone has difficulty with SSRIs they most likely will have trouble with Effexor.

Maybe I'm wrong here, though -- have you tried other SSRIs and had bad side effects with them? I would happily stand corrected if I knew that others who had bad experiences with SSRIs could have positive experiences with Effexor.

Thanks for your input,

> After this post I will try to keep out of the Effexor wars, othewise I'll get blocked for being tedious.
> If not for personal experience, the posters here would convince me to test the anti-depressant properties of strychnine before considering Effexor. Maybe satisfied Effexor customers don't write in. It is not that Effexor is a unique wonder-med, but there are people who have done well on it. Me, for example. It eradicated a killer depression. And at fairly high doses I have had only a couple mild side effects and have suffered no side effects at all the several times I have stopped taking it.
> I know several other people who, like myself, were rescued by Effexor at that point of desperation when all else has failed. I have no idea what medication any given person should take. Maybe Effexor should be a second or third option. But I hope that people who have not been helped by other meds won't rule it out based on the bad experiences some have had with it.
