I've got to report that I've been getting great results from Effexor XR (started at 37.5 and went to 75 the 2nd week) - and I felt better right from the very start of the meds. The only thing I noticed was I would have the chills every once in awhile during the first few days. No headache or weird feelings at all, 'tho. My doc said the chills may have been caused by the increased blood flow to the extremeties. Feeling sorta guilty to report this because so many seem to be having worrisome results...I'm wondering if my having ADD might be making my experience a little different as most drugs have an opposite effect upon me. I've cut down to about four cups of caffeinated coffee/day instead of 20 (caffeine helps me calm down). I've got fibromyalgia, too, so this drug is really helping to lessen the miserable pain I've had for like 32 years now. Effexor XR has calmed me right down, made me able to concentrate better, dulled the constant pain, and is helping me to sleep like a rock at night! Reading about all the problems others are having with Effexor XR has been worrying me, 'tho. Anyone else out there having good results from Effexor XR? ----Sooty
