Hello, Anne!

There's a whole laundry-list of possible side effects, and I doubt that it's possible to predict which ones for an individual to expect. It's obvious from reading the older posts here that some people have worse side effects than others, and some have different side sffects than others - a good example is that some people have experienced weight loss, and others weight gain!

Effexor isn't for everyone (I like it a lot), but that can be said about any anti-depressant. You just have to keep trying and find out what works for you.

One thing I'll add is that many of the side effects often go away after 2-4 weeks. Most of the ones I had went away after 4 days, and they were minor to begin with.

Good luck!

> my doc just gave me some samples of effexor to try and i have heard positive feedback from most people about it. I am currently on lexapro- i am supposed to lower the dose and add effexor slowly. Has anyone else been thru a similar situation? I would like to hear from people what the most prominent side effects are and what to expect. My main problems with lexapro now are my tiredness, lack of concentration and eating like mad. Will effexor help any of these?
