Effexor works but yes, it isn't fun to miss a dose or to taper off it. However, most drugs have these issues. You aren't really going to be able to avoid them.

There is some hope also. Set reminders so you don't miss a dose. If you need to stop the drug, do it gradually. I did it by buying my own gel caps and reducing my dosage two or three caplets at a time (or whatever those little balls inside the gel caps are called.) I still had some symptoms but they were pretty mild.

It sounds like you have been struggling for a while. I hope you can find some relief.

Oh, and researching every med on the Internet is OCD behavior. I found this out about myself lately. So maybe work with your therapist on stopping the behavior. Most of what you read on the Internet is the worst case scenario anyway. The people who had no issues aren't spending their time writing reviews. Don't let what you read stop you. Your reaction is likely to be different. We don't react the same to drugs.

Good luck!
