I don't know about sensitivity to NE, but I have had experience with Effexor. When you go off of Effexor, do it very slowly, do not stop all at once. I had severe reactions with Effexor... I took it daily around 8am and would cycle through it so quickly that I would "crash" around 5pm every day. I would wind up in a ball crying and sobbing.... and this was when everyone was saying "it's all in your head".... HUH? And when I went off of it... no one told me about the withdrawal... jeese, I LOST IT for about 3 days straight before one of my doctors said "it's the Effexor, take an Effexor". It took me a good month to "wean" myself off of it.
