I switched to taking it at night and that corrected the problem. I experienced nauseousness for about 2 weeks. The first six months, motivation, or the lack there of, caused great concern for me. This eventually subsided. The long term side effects that I still experience are sweating, and prolonged orgasms. I now sweat more profusely than I ever have. It also takes quite long for me to reach orgasm. That's not at all bad considering before Effexor, I experienced pre-mature ejaculation. This drug has been a positive life altering drug for me. I no longer experience depression, my sex life is great, and my co-workers enjoy the fact that I no longer bite their head off.
