Hi Rita. I'm current trying to discontinue Effexor DUE TO MEMORY LOSS and serious tragedies associated with that memory loss. Please let me know how you're doing. I do not want to have memory loss be a side effect of quitting Effexor since that side effect is WHY I'm quitting Effexor. See my thread, Anyone having memory loss with least, that's what I think I said. T.T.

> Hi all, I was taking Effexor for about 15 months when I finally decided to wean myself off.My doctor had prescribed it for me because she said I probably was suffering from Seasonal Affects Disorder(SAD). At first I got immediate relief within 6 weeks. Then eventually, I felt like I was on cruise control and didn't care about things that were important to handle. It was like I had just become completely apathetic about everything. I had very little sex drive and was no longer able to have normal orgasms.
> I weaned myself off very slowly and started adding in Valerian, Sam-E and 5HTP. That was about 1 month ago and I still find myself losing my temper and getting upset at things that would have just been annoying even before starting Effexor. Also, I have non stop back and hip pain and have been seing a chiropractor and my doctor for the pain. I am wondering now if maybe the pain is a side effect of Effexor. I also have short term memory loss and I always have had a very good memory.
> I was just wondering if anyone else out there has had similar experiences. Also, I was wondering if anyone can tell me about a lawsuit against the manufacturers of Effexor.
> Thanks, Rita
