Wonder if the effexor pushed you into a hypomanic state? It can happen to anyone if theyre susceptible.
I wouldnt chase the antidepressant properties of amphetamines.. they inevitably induce tolerance and you have to raise the dose to get the same response. Im not sure if motivation and energy would work the same or not, my guess is yes.
If you have a history of anxiety, any of the stimulant type meds will probably make it worse.
I liked desipramine when I was on it. Its cheap too.
any SSRI can cause apathy. wellbutrin is usually prescribed for that. Problem is it makes a lot of folks anxious and irritable.
