You have been doing so well for the last few years that I'm wondering whether you need such a heavy-duty drug as Effexor. You probably will have sexual s/e (although not everyone does). A lot of people do gain weight on it. What about a combination of low dose Lexapro (say 5 mg.), plus low dose regular-release Wellbutrin (say 37,5-75 mg.) I used to take huge doses of Prozac, Paxil and Zyprexa, but am so much better on these very low doses. I've lost 45 pounds, and can have a normal sex life at those dosages. My depression is a lot better with therapy, but not completely gone, I wish I didn't have to take anything, but I do think it is better for my brain to take these two, which between them increase serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine- sort of like a very safe MAOI!
