My heart rate is a little higher than normal. Someone else posted something about big problems with rapid heart rate...don't remember who... read the earlier posts in this thread.
When I started on E, the pdoc told me that increased blood pressure was a side effect. Since my blood pressure has always been on the low end I wasn't too worried. I have always been very anxious and I was wondering if the Effexor was contributing to that rather than helping it.
My new pdoc told me that Effexor doesn't really work on both anxiety and depression as I had thought. It works on one at low doses and the other at high doses..don't remember which it works on at which time. I don't understand that at all.
