Its been awhile since i posted anything here which to me is good. I haven't had any problems. I just have a question. I have been on Effexor XR 150mg twice a day. Has anyone had elevated liver enzymes from taking high does of effexor xr? I'm thinking of asking my doctor to change this med. I'm still very de3presed no energy and no interest in anything. Can i get an opinion on what antidepressant's drugs people think have worked the best for them. smhair

Hey Hairball,

I don't have an answer to your question.  I just wanted to post some support.  I do hope you are feeling better real soon.  I was recently at an MS research symposium where they were touting things like adderall, ritalin and provigil in addition to anti-depressants.  So much of MS depression is related to MS fatigue.  Just a thought. 

By the way, I LOVE your quote.  It is a classic.  (cue the music)  ;)
