Hey there debaser...thanks for the reply. Nice to see you around! Anyway, I guess pain is the wrong word, it was definately more of a tightness for sure. And, since starting the Klonopin, no more. So, I was linking the two. Dunno if it has anything to do with it.
panic queen...hello, and WELCOME to healingwell! Thank you for the congrats on quitting smoking...it was tough, and I am struggling a bit now...parts of me wants to go back, eventhough I know it's stupid. But, I quit cold turkey all those months ago, and I plan on staying away from it. Quitting was hard work! LOL. And, congrats to you as well!!
Anyway, I am afraid of the Effexor just because I am afraid of all drugs. I have been researching Effexor, and I haven't heard great things about
it...which you will find with all drugs, as all people are different. I heard something about
it possibly raising blood pressure. My blood pressure isn't super high now, but it is borderline, and having it go any higher is a great fear for me. I am scared of the sexual side effects, along with weight gain. I am scared of the whole thing I guess. Is Effexor used for anxiety as well as depression? Ugh, this can be so frustrating, ya know what I mean?
I'd love to talk to you more about
this, and I appriciate you taking the time to reply to my post.
Again, WELCOME TO HEALINGWELL!
