In reply to Started Effexor EX this morning.., posted by mickie on October 4, 2001, at 9:33:24

> I just took my first dose (75mg) of Effexor EX about an hour ago. I have tried Prozac and just previously Wellbutrin with no apparent luck. It seems to be trial and error with anti-depressent meds. I'm really hoping this will finally work for me. Can anyone give me some feedback on their experiences with this medication? I seem to suffer from a lot of stress and anxiety with some depression even with many positive things in my life. I seem to have numbness when it comes to my feelings, especially of love. Anybody else in this type of situation? Thanks for your thoughts!!

I was on Effexor XR for about 2 months, it did wonders for my depression, but I could not deal with the physical side effects. It took me a month to get off of the medication. Taking Effexor XR again would only be an option if I couldn't get out of bed and go to work. I suffer from major depression but am functional enough to hold down a job and earn a decent living. My personal life is numb though. I don't have many feelings. It takes something really tragic to make me cry. Some days, feeling numb is the best thing that can happen to me. I am very sensitive and accept critism like a knife to the heart. I have grown some tough skin over the past years, but I still need to grown some more. Good luck with Effexor Xr.
