Winifred, it is very ironic. I was never suicidal when I was depressed, but on 150 mg of Effexor, I was suicidal. (on 75, I was fine, but my doctor wanted to raise the dose) and while getting off, I was suicidal also. I'm sure Effexor is helpful to many people, and it WAS helpful to me, only at a lower dosage. I am just trying to go it alone, drug free, to see if I can "kick" this depression by myself. It is not severe. I know people who have switched from one to another antidepressant, and they all work a little differently. Some do fine on Zoloft, others on Paxil, others have stopped getting effectiveness from one after a while and have switched to another. Everyone's chemical makeup is a little bit different.
