Thank you sincerely for your words of comfort. I am grateful you did not share my son's fate. The drug companies are so rich and powerful that it takes an army to get anything changed. I am not an army. I am trying to prepare myself to lobby in my own way for change, but I am not even sure where to start.

> DM, words can't express how sorry I am for your loss. I was so very sad to read your posts. Though I wasn't damaged anywhere near as badly, I was hurt beyond all reason by having taken Effexor. There were no warnings. There was nowhere to turn for help.
> My heart goes out to you completely. I feel strongly that these companies either need to lay the facts out on the table, unvarnished, so that people know exactly how dangerous these drugs are and stop handing them out like candy or get them off the market so that no one else can be harmed by them. Effexor is currently one of the four most widely prescribed drugs in the United States.
> I hope that someone reads your words and is spared the endless tears. The patient and their family cannot be expected to know everything. We might as well all go to medical school if we need to be that informed, and there isn't any point in doctors' needing to write prescriptions if we are taking responsibility for what medications we take.
> Blessings,
