Effexor did wonders for my depression for the first couple of years, then the effects decreased. I did try to go off the medication, but my anxiety and irritability increased, so I started taking it again. Starting the med was not easy - weird sensations and little sleep for the first 6 days after start, then after increase, which eased considerably. Only troublesome side effect has been increased sweating. Stopping the medication is difficult, but easier when weaned off slowly. Missing a dose can also cause mild *withdrawal* effect. Good luck~
