> I am sure glad I read all of these threads here about Effexor! My doctor has recently put me on it for fibromyalgia chronic pain. I waited and started it at 75 mg. over the weekend to see what would happen - and it totally zonked me out! I could barely wake up and move around all weekend, and I felt totally shaky and weak, and my pupils were dilated big time. I cut the dose down last night to 37.5 mg. and I'm able to function and go to work today, although I feel kinda heavy and sedated. The pain, though, is basically gone - so that's a plus! I had a little nausea, but more like a loss of appetite, which may be a good thing. I'm going to see if the smaller dose works continuously because I don't see how I'll be able to function in the daytime on the higher dose! You're right, this is some powerful medication!

Hi, I think if you stay at a lower dose the side effects aren't as severe. The only problem I think will be when you get used to the dose you are on and feel that you need to up it???

hope it works out,

Renee

PS...I like your name!
