I've been on Effexor XR 150 mg for 2 1/2 years after going through a big bout of depression. After getting over the transition period, my good moods steadily increased. The effects have seemed to level off over time, and i have tried higher doses but they seem to make things worse. I have been wanting to get winged from the drug for over a year now, but withdrawl effects are extremely bad for me. Does anyone know the long term side effects? I've had chronic back pain for 2 years and i seem to remember seeing an article about possible back/pelvic problems linked with long-term use of effexor. My ambition has also gone down, even though my moods are mostly regulated. Within six months of starting effexor, I started smoking and dropped out of college: two of the things I had always told myself I wouldn't do. Only since being on Effexor have I felt genuinely stuck and my body seems to be slowly going downhill. I can no longer write or paint, and working is getting harder and harder to handle. I miss my old self. I've been doing reasearch on the drug and I have noticed that there is very little information about the long-term effects of Effexor. If anyone knows any information that might be useful for me, I would greatly appreciate it. I'm stuck!
