Effexor-1 Month Feeback

Posted by KimberlyDi on July 3, 2003, at 13:41:39

I've been on Effexor for 1 month now after being totally off AD's for about 6 months. Before I was on Wellbutrin. Main worst SE's are [1] severe concentration problems (example: I was just distracted and almost forgot about finishing this post.) [2] constipation [3] insomnia & [4] raised blood pressure, 125/96 when i'm usually 90/60. SE#4 raised my pdoc's eyebrows and she's considering switching me to Lexapro. I'm having a love/hate relationship with Effexor now and am uncertain how I feel about changing. Effexor kills my appetite, eliminates most of the anger inside of me, kept me sane during our fiscal year end inventory process, and helped me begin getting in touch with my feelings that were buried underneath all the anger b.s. I'm tackling problems now that used to send me hiding and drinking straight from a JD bottle. i haven't even done any research on Lexapro. i would appreciate any feedback on that. oh boy, those withdrawals. wonder if i'll experience those.
Riding the fence on Effexor,
