Hang in there. Give it a few weeks. Most docs say it takes 4-6 weeks to reach full effect. It might not be for you, but give it time to find out for sure. Glad to hear your seeing psychiatrist. I sort of look at antidepressants as a tool to make life tolerable while I go through therapy.

Good luck!



> Hi Napaba,
> I am so sorry for you when I read your story and am sorry you had to go through that. You do not need a reason to be depressed. That is what my psychiatrist has always told me, I have seen him off and on for about 6 years. It is okay to feel depressed, and besides with your history I can certainly see why you have depression. I too have depression and anxiety and panic disorder. I have been of Effexor XR 75 mg for one week now. I am feeling okay but very irritable and tired, tearful, angry and I have two girls ages 8 and 3 soon to be 9 and 4 years old. I don't know if it was the right time for me to go off Effexor. I still take Klonopin, .25 mg at night. I am making an appointment with my psychiatrist to talk about all of these problems and see what he thinks I should do.
