Well, the blood pressure gauge at the pharmacy said I was ok, but I've decided to quit the Effexor anyway. If I feel worse, maybe I'll go back but I doubt it. Really didn't like the way I was feeling on it, the nausea and the headache/pressure, though for the first couple of weeks it was fine....funny how these drugs play with us, isn't it? Sometimes they're the lesser of two "evils" and sometimes they're not.
