It seems that you are not the only one that has had some success with Effexor. Initially when I was started on Effexor about 1 1/2 ago, I went up to 300 mg and thought I felt some relief of the depression with few side effects except lack of sex drive. It's value diminished quickly for me over the past year and I was down to 75 mg, after some traumatic live events, my Psy doc upt it to 225mg. It brought on the worse depression symptons of my life. My cholesterol skyrocketed, plus who knows what other long lasting side effects. I am off now, 5 days, with no withdrawl symptons except insomnia. I started Cymbalta and have high hopes. If Effexor has helped you that's great! But I would be very aware of side effects, changes in your levels of depression and or anxiety, moods and cholesterol levels......then ???? We all are different. I do feel that Effexor XR did nothing but poison my mind and body. Good Luck! Hope I didn't scare you!
