Try St. John's Wort. It has helped me immensely with my emotions. Especially the timed release capsules. There are several brands that have timed release, if you don't find one at the grocery store, try GNC or a Vitamin World.

I was on 75 and am at 37.5 right now. Little upset stomach, but not much else. Effexor makes me sleepy, and I am tired of being tired. I am not on it so much for depression as fibromyalgia, and have not found it helps a lot. Lexapro helped the pain a lot, but I was so sleepy I couldn't function, and kept falling asleep like a narcoleptic. My doctor didn't tell me about the side-effects or the withdrawl symptoms of Effexor, and I am rather upset at him for that. He didn't want me to go off it either, but I talked to my counselor for a long time, and he recommended it, as well as another doctor I know. If it's not helping the FMS, and it makes me tired, the's no reason for it.
