Hello all!
Just thought I would add in my thoughts on Effexor. I am on 225 whopping mg of Effexor XR, and have been for about 7 months. I had horrible side effects when I first started it...Anxiety, jitteryness, insomnia, nausea, dilated pupils...you name it, I had it. But I stuck it out and everything has gone away. Effexor has been wonderful for me. I call them my "happy pills". By the way, I have generalized anxiety disorder and major depressive illness.

Good luck...it is worth the wait!

Debbie
