I must respectfully disagree with that. I have been on Effexor for three years, and my ability to focus, and cognitive abilities have never been better. Maybe it works better on a certain group of people. And others it has bad side effects. For those with bad side effects, it is not the AD for them. But for the rest of use. It is a life saver. So like any AD, it works on some people and some people have to find something else.
