> coming from someone who has had great success on this med for about a year, and was naieve enough to not even know that people were suffering from all of these side effects until I accidentally found this site yesterday, it does work wonders for some.....I hope those people wont be scared off, because if I saw these posts prior to taking it, I would not have tried it!
> In my situation, I did not have severe depression or severe panic attacks, but more, I think, a lot of stress, and had gotten to the point that I could not always control my anxities. When I got home from work at the end of the day, and my husband and kids were all getting home, that was the worst. It was all I could do to not scream "everyone get the "F" away from me, let me have a glass of wine, a ciggarette, cook dinner, and then maybe, just maybe, I'll be able to sit down and talk to everyone about their day!"
> Now I enjoy all of the kid questions and the good and bad parts of their days. And I enjoy sharing mine with them.
> Anyway, sorry for the long post, but I am so grateful for feeling this way. It was the 4th or 5th med I tried. Some didn't work at all. Some worked for a month or so. This has worked consistently for a year, with no side effects. I also forgot to take it on vacation once, and not knowing the terrible ramifications from withdrawl, thought that I had altitude sickness in Utah! I got the brain having trouble keeping up with the skull thing after about 3 days. Then was perfectly fine after getting back on it. When I did it the 2nd time, I figured it out!
> Well shame on my doc, and shame on me for not being more educated But again, I'm glad hearing all the possible side effects didn't have the chance of scaring me off.
> I have a better relationship with myself and everyone around me, and I attribute it to effexor helping me to think rationally enough to do that!
Hi: Happy to hear E works for you! I, too am pleased with the changes brought about by this medication. I am into my ninth week. I still have occasional sweats and some minor sexual side effects. But, saying goodbye, at least for now to the overwhelming anxiety, irritability, and anger has been wonderful. Something you stated made me smile. Prior to Effexor, I would come home from work and not want anyone to talk to me until I was completely relaxed. Now, I come home with a smile and am ready to hear about everyone's day. My mind has stopped racing at warp speed and I can actually think and speak clearly. I must say I have been horrified by all of the negative reaction to Effexor on these boards. Hopefully, it will continue working for me. Thanks for sharing your positive experience.
