"So, I would say that it is probable that these negative threads about Effexor, though perfectly valid and representing the true experiences of these posters, are not representative of all Effexor user."

**That's true. Although it's interesting to me that 2 of my friends who went on EFFEXOR for completely different reasons than myself are still very very ill after being off EFFEXOR for 2-3 weeks. I've been off totally going on 5 weeks now and am still very ill. Yes, EFFEXOR works for people. But the problem is we're NOT BEING EDUCATED by our physicians. I don't even think our doctor's know what the side effects are or what can happen when eventually we'll need to come off this drug. There are some people that will have to be on this drug for life. I think that's a small percentage. But for the rest of us who have to wean off and then stop taking it, it's hell. I'm sure the drug company knows full well the side effects. We're left with educating ourselves and that is a very tricky process. We should all know what we're putting into our bodies and when the doctor strongly urges us to be on an anti depressant, we're not conditioned to ask why. NOW I would ask why. NOW I would ask questions. I wish I would have before. As ill as I am now, I wonder what in the world has happened to my body. What damage have I caused that will not go away? If I do a search on EFFEXOR, I find a ton of information like this. People having very negative side effects from this drug. It's something that can't be ignored.
