Hello Aim

I've been on Effexor for two months. For the first month, there were all kinds of crazy side effects - so many I lost count. Some of them common, some of them rare. Everytime something weird would happen to me I'd think "hmmm maybe its the effexor," then id do a little bit of research on the net, and slowly but surely I'd find my symptom listed somewhere. This drug is so crazy that just about anything you can imagine is a possible side effect. Yes, the jaw clenching is one of them.

As for feeling effects immidately - so did I. The first two days on the medication were the best I had on them. My own doctor told me that this one is one of the meds that kicks in the fastest. I don't know how common it is, but I can say that you're not alone.

as for increasing your dose - everyone is different, but i think you some people definitley can continue on the 37.5 mg. personally i started taking 37.5 mg for a few days after about a month of taking 75 mg, and i felt no difference whatsoever.

Good luck
