hi again mercedes,

You mentioned that you hadn't been "hardly" drinking since going on Effexor. Like you, i too decided I just had to quit entirely when I started Effexor, and actually had already quit completely a couple of months before that, hoping that eliminating alcohol by itself would have helped my depression even without starting Effexor but when it hadn't, i finally decided to take the chance on Effexor's side effects and started taking it.

But i do occasionally think it would be nice. Anyone who's reported here about trying to have a drink while on Effexor said it set them back for 2-3 days afterwards and they regretted it.

Are there any precautions you take when you do have a drink now to keep from having side effects?

hope you're (all) having a good Sunday. I just came in from doing some trimming on the deck, standing in the shade the whole time (it is a hot day here but i was in a cool breeze and in the shade) and yet i was soon dripping with sweat the whole time, the one bugaboo it seems of Effexor, and had to come in and take a shower just from a little trimming in the shade! I've never been a sweat-er my whole life. Granted, this isn't a debilitating side effect but still the one really persistent and annoying one. Oh well... :))
