I get something I describe as a brain "Yawn", it is definately a "shiver" as you described. It is the strangest head feeling I've ever had and until now, never contributed it to the Effexor. I've been off the Effexor for two years now, but I still get those - less than once a month ( amongst major back pain, nerve problems, tingling feet, night sweats, itchy feet and hands). SO I fear for what I've already done to my body. I disagree 100% with the science solution. It's all BS, it's all a test, we're the subjects of course, they get all the $$, the trips to mexico, the dinners out with the pharm. reps and we get to deal with the short term and long term side effects because they don't do the homework before they push it down our throats. I remember my doctor talking me into taking drugs for the depression. I DID have problems but I did not want to go on anything - he literally persuaded me into it, reassuring me that it wouldn't hurt me, yada yada yada.I will always search for alternative treatment: vacation, relaxation, removing the things in my life that are at the root, yoga excerize - anything. I hope and pray I stay well mentally. Some of you don't have an option but if there's any chance that it's more than chemical - try something else first. Like living by a stream or listening to relaxing music, exercise anything
