Hi there,
I'm sorry to hear about your IBS symptoms and the Effexor w/d....good job for making it this far, though!

I am not sure about GI symptoms. I definitely had them coming off, and now thinking of it, I have been pretty messed up since I've been off (three weeks), but I have other chronic illness and so I assumed it was that. Ah, the joy of unspecific physical symptoms. Did the GI symptoms develop on effexor?

I am not sure about permanency, either. (sorry I'm not much help w/any of this, I guess!)..but I would think it might take a while for things to calm down. I have been off three weeks or so and I am still experiencing w/d symptoms, some severe.

It might also be important to rule out another cause for your symptoms....have you seen a GI specialist?

I hope it does improve or that you are able to find the source. I've been literally on every other SSRI out there (aside from newest) and never had GI complications with anything like I have Effexor. I also worry about permanent chnages in my sytem from the Efexor, and frankly, I doubt there is any reseearch at this point to show lasting side-effects.

Hope this least you know you're not alone!

Hang in there,
