Before, I was dysthymic with ADD-like problems & mild s. phobia. 2 weeks into the course I began developing major, suicidal depression, which has stayed with me since (3yrs). I perservered (unwisely with hindsight), taking 425mg for 6 weeks (3 mths in all). Haven't been the same since. Not my fave drug of all time.

Dear JahL,

I wish I had a magic wand to undo to you what Effexor did. That this happened to you does not surprise me. I have had similar experiences with other drugs. I don't think Effexor is any more liable to do this than other drugs, though. Someone here had the same thing happen to them with amoxapine (Asendin).
