In reply to EFFEXOR EFFECTS, posted by shawna on October 17, 2003, at 16:22:13

I am on 225 of Effexor this is my second week on that dosage, I'm not sure I like it, I had a whole summer of coming back from a horrible episode with depression and anxiety. Discovered that my good ole friend Prozac had let me down, LOL, without my knowing it was happening. I have had depression since I was 4 yrs old and went 30 yrs without treatment so I'm looking at having to take meds for the rest of my life to keep the depression under control. Here's the deal.. Prozac helped me for so long, 10 yrs. but 60 m was as high as my Doc took me before trying something else. Then he put me on not Celexa but that other stuff, pro something, and it didn't do the trick, just took me to around the 50 percent level on the highest dosage he could prescribe. as I was still suicidal at that point and needed some thing faster so he put me on Effexor. I just remembered Lexapro, On Effexor I'm just not there yet as for as feeling my old self. And I think I am having some ear problems with it and I really hate the way it makes me feel if I accidentally miss a dose. Anybody had this kind of problem with prozac and do you think a higher dosage of Prozac would have helped. Also he took me off Buspar so the anxiety is getting worse again but he said that the effexor would kick in for that in a few. Does any of this sound familiar to anyone? i'm also wondering if I really need meds that act on both neuro transmittors. I really loved Prozac, hope it's not a lost cause as I,m getting tired of this med hoppin.
