I am so thankful I found this site. I have been on
Effexor for a little over six months. I found it
helpful for increasing my energy, helping me
sleep and generally getting through the day.
I started to notice that my sex drive disappearred
and my ability to experience emotions was gone.
And made the decision to come off the medication.
I was put on half the dose as of last week. I started
experiencing severe nausea, diahrea and tiredness
to the point of having to sleep most of the day.
Until I read the experiences of others I thought
I had the flu. In addition I have always experienced
the electric eye shocks and didn't have a clue it
was from the medication. I am still looking forward
to getting off the medication and now have some
understanding of what I am going through.I hope it
doesn't get too bad.
