Hey guys. I'm new here, but that doesn't mean I haven't been (obsessively?) lurking about. I don't want to bore anyone with my story....it has been long, there has been pain .... I'm pretty sure you all already know it! So I want to get to the point of this thread: Who here waited through a long period between when they first began their AD and when they felt they were in remission/good enough?
- You know, those who took over
a month before they felt anything, and perhaps longer until they felt truly themselves.
I'm currently a month in on my current dose of effexor, and I'm still having my moments and doubts. I just want to calm myself, by reminding myself that there are
people out there in which the 6-8 week recommendation was actually worth it, even with very little mood lift for quite some time.
So please! Give me affirmation. No horror stories/effexor hate/warnings/negativity.
