Thanks for your reply, pfinstegg. Maybe Effexor is too strong for my needs. I'm not sure. The doctor who prescribed is not a pdoc, as I mentioned, but he does know that I have a history of depression which has been quite severe. I'm very oriented toward nutrition and natural healing these days which is why I debated going back on an AD. Unfortunatly, I think I really need one. However, if I start gaining weight, I will go off it. I'm so happy with my weightloss success. I don't want to reverse things.

I tried Wellbutrin one time. It was extremely agitating for me. It was dangerous for me really. All my anxieties and issues were pushed to the forefront of my mind, and I felt like I was going to explode. I can't handle drugs that are too stimulating.

This is the second day on Effexor, and I think I feel more normal than yesterday. I don't feel altered today. I guess that's a good sign. It's been so long since I've been on an AD, I can't remember how long they take to kick in. Are they all different?
