I've never tried these sites before but am getting desperate to learn more about depression/anxiety medication from people who really use it and not from a text book.
I was on Effexor too for 3 weeks but came off due to the side effects. I was gaining weight, was retaining fluid and unable to orgasm. And those are just the worse side effects. Now, weight is a issue that I deal with anyway and I couldn't deal with something making it worse. Sex is a joy and important to me so not being able to find fulfillment is a real problem for me.
Today the doctor has given me Cipralex. She claims I shouldn't gain weight and the chances are less that it will affect me sexually. (I'm on 10 mg). I'm also concerned how I will sleep on it as I suffer with insomnia anyway.
Has anyone tried it? What has been your experience on it? How quickly did you feel better? Any other drugs that have been better in dealing with these side effects. HELP!
