I'm New to effexor - Any positive stories?

Posted by teachersrule on December 21, 2001, at 20:59:29

I just started taking Effexor XR. I am experiencing some minor side effects, such as yawning, but almost immediately I felt much less anxious and more patient. Here is the clincher, I am afraid of this whole anti-depressant thing. I am in 12 step recovery for addiction for over two years. There is a major stigma about taking anything. I decided to take it in addition to my program and psychotherapy after hearing from two totally different therapists that I needed this. I am also recently involved in an anger group - so I'm not looking to a pill for all the answers. It sure would be nice to hear some success stories. Anyone currently taking Effexor successfully? Anyone work through their issues and are now effexor free? I would really love to hear from others. Thanks
