Hi,

I am on day two of effexor xr 37.5. I am using it primarily for chronic (pelvic) pain and secondarily for the anxiety that has surfaced around dealing with this and another chronic pain problem while continuing with the rest of my life. I was not happy to take effexor xr from all I read here, but other than tricylics (that I feared would sedate me and make me gain weight even more) it seems to be the only one to act on norepinephrine and pain. Now I am wondering if it was worth it because I feel so nauseous and a little light-headed and my shoulders hurt and I need to get up over 150 for this to work on pain (my doc said 225 but I hope it is lower). Anyhow, I want to know if anyone had success with it for treating pain and how long it took before side effects wore off. Thanks for your help!
