Hi everyone,
I just had a question about Effexor XR. I am currently taking 75 mg once daily for about six months now and I have gained weight and seem to keep gaining weight. Has this happened to anyone else? I also take Klonopin, .5 mg at night for anxiety. I used to take Luvox for about three years and I am starting to think I should just go back on it. Last time I saw my psychiatrist he mentioned that I might try Lexapro but I don't think I want to try it after reading all the info about it. I am not really fond of Effexor either. I have tried many ADs in the past. My problem is GAD and anxiety, panic disorder and some depression. My 8 1/2 year old daughter has just been put on Effexor XR 37.5 mg a day. She has been taking it for about 4 weeks now because she has anxiety that is affecting her school work and her health. She worries about everything, even simple things. I guess she has inherited this from me. I am worried about her taking the Effexor and my husband and I thought it over before we agreed to let her try this. She has been seeing a psychologist as well as the psychiatrist who prescribed the Effexor for her. Her pediatrician even says she thinks the Effexor might be good for her to try. Has anyone had any similar situations like this with their young kids?
Thanks for the input, JC
