I'm concerned that you were prescribed an antidepressant for a life event and not for clinical depression. This is what worries me - this stuff is being handed out like candy when it should be carefully controlled and monitored. Have you had trouble with depression before? If not, I would advise you to not take it again - tough out or ask your doc's advice about what can help lessen the effects if they are impossible to handle. I would also offer advice for you to get some support - if you are not already getting support for the grief and emotions over the divorce - as well as support for the withdrawal. Hold on - it will get better. Effexor is nothing to be played with. Some have reported vision damage that is permanent - mine seems to have finally cleared up, but still doesn't seem to be just right. Take care of yourself. You are in my prayers.
