Scott, even Effexor causes some muscle tightness for me, but it is in my shoulders and the back of my neck. That's OK! As long as that's the only place. Also, I get the least amount of acid reflux with Effexor, the others were horrible for it (esp. Celexa/Prozac). The short half-life nearly eliminates the nocturnal reflux (which is the worst kind). Cognitive functioning was clearly (pun intended) the best on Prozac however. I could definitey focus better at work with that one. Effexor's OK, but requires coffee. Anti-cholinergic? Effexor does cause just the *slightest* dry mouth for me, and I also get the least diarrhea from it than any other SRI. For me Prozac was the best for my "head" (if it didn't disrupt sleep horribly-which it also does), but Effexor seems to be the easiest on my body.----Mitch
