Hello, and welcome to our very exclusive club. I've been on Effexor XR since last October and now at 150mg. I know that it saved my sanity and life. I also take Wellbutrin XR (300mg), Ambien and Xanax. The Effexor gave me loads of side effects: made me jittery, sweating, vivid dreams, increased blood pressure (though that was resolved when we went up again, SLOWLY). It helped me hugely with the depression and anxiety. I had to add the Wellbutrin to stop crying and it's made me constipated! what a joy! and I must take the Ambien to be able to sleep. The Xanax is for panic attacks. I did extensive reading and asking of questions when I started on effexor. Everybody reacts differently, but I honestly have to say that the benefits have outweighed the drawbacks compared to other AD I had been on.

Keep in touch, and good luck!
