Effexor, dreams of gore

Dr. Bob, and Tygrrr who posted that, thanks for the site and the writing.

Those dreams happened to me when I tried Effexor, six or seven years ago. But they seem as real now as they did when I woke up -- unlike ordinary dreams that fade.

If anyone is looking for a berserker warrior drug, I think that may be the direction to look.

This is the first mention I've ever found of this effect, anywhere. I feel, for the first time since those dreams, a little better about having had them.

I've known the Robert Louis Stevenson quote to the effect that we all have thoughts that 'would shame hell' -- but it's little comfort when something so effortlessly brings them to awareness.

My doctor never heard of it (and he's told me that he knows that many such effects aren't reported to the pharmaceutical companies, or published if reported, and that he listens to the whispers in the hallways at the meetings as carefully as to the presentations, for the news that isn't going to be published anytime soon about such effects).
