That's too bad. When I was on effexor it actually helped reduce my migraines, but if I was you I would GET OFF it immediately. There are lots of antidepresents out there that don't give you migraines. I'm on a new one called Lexapro and I haven't had any side effects, migraine or otherwise, at all. I have a couple of friends on it that also haven't had any side effects either. It is a fairly new one, so you might ask your doctor about it and give it a try.
Good luck. Migraines gave me depression, so I know how you feel. It is just terrible. I hope you get help soon.
