Well, I noticed ringing in my ears. The ringing was constant. I thought it was tinnitis, but ever since I have been off it, My hearing seems better. As a musician, I was very worried about my hearing.
Getting off Effexor is hell. I noticed my muscles twitching a lot too, especially in my face. I also had uncontrollable yawning...not because I was tired, but because the muscles in my neck were making my throat open in a way that seemed to trigger my yawn reflex over and over. It was weird.
