I'd imagine that I probably go almost every typical side-effect on record for that med. It's been a long time - over 10 years - since I touched it. I had massive weight gain, profuse sweating, eventual loss of motivation (i.e. apathy), headaches, more and more trouble waking up in the morning, a total inability to achieve erection, let alone orgasm, constipation, urinary hesitancy, and an insatiable appetite, with a hankering for sweets. I remember eating 3 or 4 bowls of cereal in a single sitting on a regular basis.

I had a brutal withdrawl from Anafranil, but it wasn't as bad as Effexor, which was, as far as I'm concerned, life threatening.

I've had a problem with most meds I've taken, including all meds with a serotonergic component, where I eventually cannot wake up early. The worst one of these was Effexor, where I was regularly sleeping into the late afternoon. Paxil was bad too. I guess you could say I tend towards hypersomnia.
