I have a couple of thoughts for you guys. First, if you are wanting to go off Effexor you might ask your Doc to place you on Prozac ( or something similar) Then you can frequently come off the Effexor and after a while, he will wean you off of Prozac. Much less hassles that way.

There might also be a difference between how Effexor and Effexor XR are affecting you. You get much higher peak blood levels on Effexor.

I have found that something (whether sex or food or whatever) that I did before I had the depression treated changed drastically after I was no longer depressed. A lot of those habits may have been the only thing that brought any pleasure (brief reprieve from the depression).

I think that is why sex is so impacted at first by Effexor. It usually works out in the next six to twelve months but may feel very different.
