Someone would take a drug and not question it's side-effects?
Its irresposnible to suggest such a thing. Especailly in light of the recent Vioxx debacle.
Everyone needs to know about any side effects you might have. From doctors to pharmacists to drug companies. They can't protect us unless we speak up.
As for Effexor. Even when carefully ramped down, I suffered sever withrdrawl from this medication.
Some people don't get withdrawl or even side-effects from Effexor.But I know many who have slowly reduced effexor and still had withdrawl.
Decide for yourself how much side effects are tolerable to YOU. That's what matters - and, please, allways report even minor side-effects to your doctor.
