> Although its sad for you and your friends, 3 ppl is very very far from a statistically significant sample of people and can in no way be representative of the general effexor-using population ... not to mention that there is probably a "selection bias" in that people who are experiencing trouble with it are more likely to search on teh net for it ... and hence, there is probably an overepresentation of "bad effexor experiences" on psychobabble.

**As a lot of people stated before, this message board is really a venting forum for those of us going through some really tough times physically. I of course know that *3* people are not representative of the mass population. I was using that as an example. There are more than a handfull of us having major health issues because of this drug. Like I said, it's great that it helped you. But there are a lot of us out there that are having adverse side-effects. Had I known EFFEXOR would do this to ME, I would never have touched it. 5 weeks after totally being off of this, I spent last night convulsing and being sick to my stomach. It's the same thing that happened to me if I missed a day, or even a few days. It's just not normal. What happened to me is NOT representative of the majority, but when you skip a drug for a day and have those adverse side effects, how is that normal? If I sound argumentative, I'm really not trying to be. At all.
