I found milnacipran (Savella) better than effexor for depression with atypical features. The only bad side effect was male genitourinary (prostate related urinary and sexual horror). No reports I've heard of for similar issues with females. Broadly Effexor, Pristiq, Savella and Cymbalta are all SNRIs. You could also try an SSRI with thyroid to augment. Thyroid boosts norepinephrine.

You should talk to your doc. And go to and read their professional side effects for each drug (do a search for the drug and then scroll down. Click the one with professional next to it. It gives the real side effects profiles including post marketing.
