> hi,
> ive been on effexor for 2 years, since december im lowering my dose. and sunday i took my last dose. i dont feel very well and expeience all that was written before. especially my head is behaving weird. fortunately i dont have to work for another 4 days. i hope this shit will soon be over.
> sice 5 years i have anorexia. two years ago my physician told that when i would take effexor i would be better and gain weight. stupid enough i thought that it would heal me from anorexia, so i would eat and gain weight and be normal.
> but this was not what he meant. my family knew this but said nothing.
> i gained weight, but the anorexia didnt disappear. i hardly ate anything but i still gained weight. i was afraid that i was boulimic (my worst mightmare) and i got more depressed. so my physician increased my dose.
> i didnt tell anybody why i was depressed.
> i gained more weight but hardly ate anything. then i suspected that it might have to do with effexor.
> i asked my physician and parents who easily confirmed it.
> i cant say how guilty i feel, for having used effexor
> but im also angry, i cant understand that somebody gives effexor to someone who is anorexic.
> are there people who recognise my situation?
> who have been given effexor for the same reason?
> sorry for my bad english but i cant think clearly t this moment
> how long will the withdrawel symptoms last?
> thanx helmi

helmi-I know very little about the anorectic effects of Effexor SR. How did you feel, (what was your "mood")
while you were taking Effexor? I don't understand why you feel guilty for having used Effexor.

You say that you ate very little, yet gained weight. Do you think that Effexor might help people facing starvation, such as the many reported to have starved in North Korea?

You say "i gained weight, but the anorexia didnt disappear." I guess I don't understand the real meaning of "Anorexia". Could you explain it to me? Thanks, jojo
