I wish I'd read this post when I was prescribed Effexor in August 2003.

The side effects I experienced were aggression, irritability, extreme negativity, severe acne (I ended up going to an Aesthetician every other week, and it took 45 minutes just to have my sternum cleared of blackheads and whiteheads. Even though I never had perfect skin before, I now have severe acne, although it's been months since I've taken the drug, which just shows how toxic Effexor is), severe constipation (I sometimes went days without going to the bathroom, and when I did, the stool was so hard my toilet would overflow each time), severe sleep disorders, weight gain, and of course "brain shivers" when I missed a dose once, and even when I finally tapered off the medication because it was making me feel worse instead of better.

Oh, and I ended up suffering from another nervous breakdown whilst on this medication due to all the awful side effects.

I agree - we should all sue!
