Hello! I just want to share my experience with you. I suffer from chronic depression, panic attacks and obsessive compulsive disorder since 1990 and the only medication that has helped me has been Effexor. It has been 8 months now since I have a "new" life. My dosis is 225mg a day and I would not dare to miss a dose! I can say that since I started taking it, my days have been brighter and I see everything with a whole new perspective. I must say though, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, DO NOT drink alcohol because it can make you go completely nuts without you even realizing it. Twice (with 3 glasses of red wine) I went berserk, into some sort of "trance", lost all inhibitions and insulted half of my family... the worst part is, I don't even remember it. Wish you all well in your way of recovery!
