I am very sorry and alarmed that you are feeling very suicidal - please do NOT do anything to act on these feelings. Call a loved one, call 911, but HANG IN THERE.

As far as Effexor is concerned, I've been on EffexorXR for about a year now but I get the impression since you said you had thrown up one pill and then 1/2 pill, that you may have taken regular Effexor (not the extended release capsules).

I have heard that Effexor (either version) can cause stomach upset, and the way to get around it is to eat something substantial before taking it. Had you taken it on an empty stomach by any chance? If so, that's probably why you couldn't hold it down.

Even if you had taken it on a full stomach, I would say try again before giving up on it. Maybe it was just a fluke reaction you had at the time.

Best of luck.
