I have experienced overall body aches. (Been taking since 3/3/02, about 10 wks.) I have Fibromyalgia and the Effexor XR seems to aggravate it. I'm getting headaches every night, I'm dizzy, and my stomach looks like I've swallowed a basketball! In 2 days, I'm supposed to increase another 37.5 mg. I know I'm supposed to be positive, but I doubt this is going to work for me. I hate that because this is the first anti-depressant I've taken that hasn't caused my mind to race. In fact, I'm so calm that I wonder if I'm depressed. (smile) I'm so used to racing around. I hear you have to give it time for the side effects to go away. I'm just wondering when they will. Anybody know? Thanks.
