Hello and Welcome to Healing Well.
I am Kitt
We are a group of people who know what your going through. I am more than happy to be your friend and help you talk through your problems.
I think the best thing is to get to the physician and get a good check up, see if he feels you have depression or something else.
From there you can talk about the Effexor and the many other choices.
You may want to consider therapy too.
Take care and keep posting.
