Hello Sheryl,
 
What you mentioned are some known side-effects of Effexor, you should probably call your doctor and mention this to him/her.
 
Best wishes,

I did but unfortunatley my doctor has left the practice and is moving elsewhere too far for me to follow. So i have been dealing with other doctors at the practice who say my symptoms arent side effets. eyes
Well when i finally talked to my doctor who told me he was moving to savanah GA, he told yes it is a side effect. but its been two weeks now, he uped my dose of well butrin and seems to be helping. I dont how long takes for the well butrin to kick in withthe depression, becasue im still quite depressed, so hopefully it will kick in soon, the extra dose helped.
thank you for replying Liz
For the past two weeks has been a roller coaster ride of emotions, nasea, headaches, which have finally gone away.

Thank you LIz, slowly but surely I m getting there, just wish the wellbutrin would kick in, still kinda depressed. And i need t lose all the effexor weight gain, to the tune of about 50 pounds, whihc is vey hard for me to do becasue I an limited in what I can eat, so it hard to eat healthy, and i cant storng aerobic exercise. walking about it, and stretches and stuff like that, so wish me luck with that,thanks for you support... :-)
