I am on Effexor XR(it at least..i am coming off)to control Hotflashes from a shot called Lupron Depot....today is day 2 trying to get off Effexor XR.....i feel like i need some sleep. As i sit here at work, all i can think about is my comfy bed at home! I did not have any side effects at all yesterday which was my first full day....woke up without any headaches, life seemed great. But today that's not the case...my body hurts, concentration is very hard to keep, my head and eyes just can't seem to focus properly. I hope that it doesn't last long, but my heart tells me that's it's gonna last longer. I have to say though some of the emails that have been posted in the past are scary.....if i had known what i know now....i would never have started Effexor Xr....your mood definitely improves but the side effects can be terrible. I wish my doctor had gone over this medication thoroughly..i am mad at myself that i didn't ask the questions. Education can be a huge part of the problem!! Well hopefully i will feel better soon, i have too.
Have a wonderful day all :) Carsan
