> I am extremly concerened about all of these side effects you all are talking about. I have taken 7 different meds before effexor xr and I have felt over all pretty good on this med. Do you think that mabye some of the withdrawl side effects are in your head?

I believe I posted before about this, that a lot of the side effects are "suggestable", and some are so vague that they could be attributed to many things. For example, I had body aches, and when I saw that on the list, I attributed them to the Effexor. Unfortunately, several months after quitting the Effexor, I still have some body aches, so that is an issue for my doctor. But the "brain zings" are definitely real. The appetite could be real, could be a manifestation of the depression, and the brain fogginess is subjective, although I DO feel that my brain is getting sharper, even though I never noticed that I was so foggy - I just noticed I was having trouble finding the right words, and names of people I have known for years were eluding me. I just kind of thought I was getting older.

Does that answer your question? Clear as mud, huh?
