hello catri,

I was on Effexor for about six months and I learned that for me I needed to adjust the times I took my meds, esp my psych meds....

If I had a chance to go out with frineds and have a nice dinner and ONE glass of wine, I took my Effexor(and all my other meds the next morning).
I have continued to do this through my 18 months of Celexa and now when Im on Lexapro.

I have been on psych meds intermittently for the past 20 years and I have learned that my meds are just a very small piece of my life and nothing is engraved in granite for me...
that the secret to compliance is convience...
so I set my med cassette next to my toothbrush in the bathroom and take those meds that next morning when Im already at the sink brushing my teeth....

You got to figure out what works for you...just know. Just knowing that you have some options can make your life a little nicer and managable all I know is it works for me...
