Hi again april8~when I first started on Effexor, I felt the same way. However, I was also on Lamictal at the same time and that really balanced out my *moods*. The feelings you describe that I can relate to DID PASS *for me*.
Remember too, that if you really start to 'spiral down', to let your prescribing doctor be aware, maybe he/she can offer you something else. I know *for me* that Celexa didn't cause me to gain weight. Paxil did, but I had an allergic reaction so if I would have stayed on it, I'm sure I would have gained more.
Hang in there teddy bear!:-)

> yesterday I got horrible mood swings, wanted to die, then felt fine, then wanted to die, then wanted to smash my friends cell phone (which would make you laugh if you knew me because I am like a teddy bear)
> has anyone had this side effect from effexor xr? please write me if you have and let me know. DID IT PASS? I feel okay this morning but am bracing myself in case it happens again, scary. I want to stay on this drug though because I was on paxil before and gained too much weight.
> thanks in advance,
> April
