Re: what to do for depression?
I myself have not tried Effexor but my daughter has been on it for a couple of years. In my opinion it's a great drug, no weight gain, no major side effects, controls the depression, no brain fog, no anxiety, it just works. There only one draw back I've learned of and most doctors will deny it but you can read it on this board again and again. Withdrawls when you try to get off of it can be rough. I have done research for my daughter and some people have had great success by simply slowly weaning themselves off by opening each capsule and taking out 1 ball the 2 first weeks 2 the next two and so on until they were off. In my opinion from what I've read on it, it's one of the best antidepressants available. Good Luck, Sue
