I quit Effexor XR about a year and half ago after my cholesterol skyrocketed and only had limited benefit for my depression and none for anxiety. As I have gone through many meds after, I thought I would try Effexor again as I begin the med workups for ECT. My first couple of days, no side effects , after that now on my 13th day, the side effects are much worse, they started about the 5th day, I thought they would pass, no luck, severe lethargy, flu like symptons, no energy, depression worse, anxiety worse at night.......I am going to ask to go back to Lexapro, Wellbutrin, Remerons and Klonopin that I was on before, at my depression was stil there but I was able to exercise and do a few things. Maybe they would click with the ECT........having the flu 24/7 won't work.......down the toilet with a bottle of meds once again........insanity upon the way...the first time I had no withdrawl symptons....I weaned myself off over about 2 months....
