Good luck with effexor. I took it for many years and it worked well for me. I was taking 375mg a day. I switched to pristiq. I only take one 100 mg pill of that a day. Much better than the five capsules that I had to take.
Effexor did work well for me. So much so that I thought I was better once and decided to stop it. That was a mistake. I finally realized that the reason I felt better was because of the drug. Your side effects should be better in a week or so. And the medication will reach it full effect in six to eight weeks. But I think you will feel it before then.
Best wishes to you. Feel free to start your own thread so that we all can get to know you better.
