I have been looking all over the web for something like this. My mother was prescribed 2 75mg of effexor taken at night. She doesn't have a computer so she ask me to try find out some facts for her. She has been on it for about 2 months. She hasn't gotten a night of sleep. She has had at least two seizures a week.(she has never had a seizure in her life) She also has to take Lor Tab for her excessive pain. Has anyone ever experience seizure?? If you can't get sleep how does this help depression?? The workman's comp. are saying the seizures are from her injury, but I don't think so. 150mgs a day... is that alot??? Well maybe not.... I read Lisa taking 300.... Any ideas would help a great deal.
Thanks in Advance
