> I am extremly concerened about all of these side effects you all are talking about. I have taken 7 different meds before effexor xr and I have felt over all pretty good on this med. Do you think that mabye some of the withdrawl side effects are in your head?

This is Morgaine speaking. You know, it's interesting
what you're asking. I was up to 325mgs. at my highest,
and then just started weaning down weekly until my
last week was 75mgs. I didn't even have to go to the 37.5
opening the capsule bit. It was downright smooth and
not at all what I was expecting or been warned about.
I was off of Effexor for about 9 months. I started
back again on 3/29/04 at 75mgs. and staying there.
Thus far it has been the only drug that has helped me
in any way with my "Clinical Depression". Prozac made
me jittery and paranoid. Wellbutrin made me break out
in a horrific all over body rash, as well as made
me antsy and jittery, so.....My point is I do not
have a lot of experience with a myriad of anti-depressants,
but I do know my body and my brain well enough to
know what feels 'right', what feels 'safe', what feels
'healthy'. The fact that there are so many people out
there who have had such unpleasant experiences with
Effexor does nothing but prove that it truly does "take
all kinds to make a circus". Some drugs are just
not going to work in the ideal way for some people.
For other people these same drugs work wonders for them.
Unless one is the 'Supreme Being' or 'Force' of all
knowledge and creation who's to say which drug is good
or bad? Number one that's a dogmatic predicament.
If there was such a thing as a 'Happy' pill, or a 'Love'
pill that actually worked for 'everyone' in the 'exact'
'same' way, do you think our world situation would be
as f..... up as it is? Morgaine
