Ok, I didn't read far enough back to know that this was a thread about the good of Effexor.

A comment on that:

After 4 weeks at 75 mg./d, I finally went up to 150 mg/d, which I think is the lowest level that is considered "theraputic."

Almost immediately, my depression & anxiety easied. It was a blessing. --until three days later, when it got me.

So it is good for those who can take it.

But no matter whether it is good for you or not, if you've taken it for more than a couple of weeks, I think it is probably inadvisable to stop cold turkey.

So, yay for the good it does.

Be careful when coming off it.

It usually takes 4-6 weeks for an anti-depressant to fully work. But, if you're not out of the woods on the "side-effects" by the end of the 2nd week, and I think this may hold true for most anti-depressant, get off it quickly and try something else.
