Hi and welcome to p-babblers. I just found this site about a month and a half ago while researching effexor. I find it very very helpful. Kinda different strokes for different folks re: medications.

I cannot share your concern because I was a smoker before meds., and still a smoker. The one thing I've noticed is that I smoke more now but I think it's because of not working. However it doesn't bother me if I'm in a store for hours to not have a cig. I went on a buying spree last year b-4 Christmas at Costco. I was very depressed, crying all the way to the store...bought over $700 dollars (two visits) of stuff I didn't need. Luckly I returned most of it when I came to my senses. I was prepared to tell the clerk that the reason for my returns was that "I shop when I'm depressed" but she didn't ask. I didn't go crazy and buy a new living room set but I thought about it. Oh, I bought a car back in '96 cause I was depressed. Gosh, what memories come back when someone shares their experiences. Keep in touch.

> Hey, has anyone started smoking after taking effexor xr? I had quit for 15 years but am now smoking again. I have not been able to quit? Does anyone think that effexor increases impulsivity? I have bipolar II and effexor put me into mod-hi hypomania. Bought a beautiful new comfortable living room set that I couldn't afford. I am now on three meds: effexor, lamictal, and lexapro. each time a med is added I keep thinking this one will help me quit smoking. no such luck. this is my first message ever on this board. am I nuts? am I alone in this? I do experience strange side-effects to drugs, often the opposite of the listed side-effects. Please respond to this any other weirdos like me.
