Effexor

Effexor

My Doctor prescribed Effexor to me a week ago due to my depression was getting worse. They took me off zolof because it was giving me a massive headache but reading all the review about this drug I haven't taken any of it because I am afraid of having bad side effect. What should I do? What Kind of Side of effect does anyone have and did it help anyone on here? I also have anxiety about taking any type of medications,

I've been on Effexor XR for many years and have no real side effects from it at all. If I forget to take the meds one day, I do have very strange dreams that night but that's It! Hope it works as well for you!

I was on Effexor for 20 years with no problems. However it did get to the point that it stopped working and I have changed meds to two more anti-depressants.

@A MyDepressionTeam Member. Don’t give up on all medications because one or two didn’t work. Everyone’s body chemistry is different and sometimes it takes trial and error til you find a medicine that works for you.
Hang in there.

@A MyDepressionTeam Member. The Rx companies have to list every possible side effect that could happen with their medication. Call it cya. Try taking a small dose and build on it, that has helped me before.
