> I went to the doc due to occassional days of feeling blue, sad, emotional. This happens just a few times each year. And when it does, it tends to be around the time of my menstral cycle. She had me take Zoloft, which gave me headaches, then switched to Serzone, which did not help at all. Now she wants me to take Effexor XR. I am curious if anyone else was given this med for just having a few days of feeling sad a couple of times out of the year? I am hesitant to take it due to all the negative feedback about withdrawals. Thanks for any info you want to share...
WOW, I hope you have read all the withdrawl side effect probs of this drug on here before considering it unless you REALLY need it. I'm definately no doc but it's obvious from what I've read and experienced that this stuff is the last resort. I know I have mild depression and anxiety, runs in the family, but that crap made me feel like a zombie!! I only took it 9 days and thank god had no withdrawls but am still dealing with a side effect, I feel much better off it than on, all I can tell you is research the hell out of it before you try it!! Good Luck....
