I just read your message about Effexor and Tegretol. Can you tell me what some of the serious side effects are for Effexor. I started 75mg last week and for at least two days I felt really bad. One thing that's bothered me is at night or when I'm resting I jerk. Sometimes in my legs but also my arms and neck. It was really bad the first day I increased the dosage for the Effexor. I don't remember exactly when I first noticed the jerking - whether it started before of after I began the Effexor in Oct. Most of the side effects have eased off. I still feel sleepy and groggy. But I can make it through the day without getting anxious or depressed. Where else can I find info about this? I've looked up Effexor and all I can find is the usual side effects. Another thing that's happened is my vision has changed. I wear contacts or glasses but I think I'm going to need my prescription changed. I wish I didn't have to take any medicine but the pain in my neck,arm, shoulder and back makes me very upset the worse it gets. If I can get help for this pain then I think I could control my depression better. Thanks for listening. Get back to me if you can. Kay
