Hey everyone, good news inside!


I'm not sure if anyone remembers me but I've posted a few times over the past little while regarding a spacey lightheadedness coupled with some anxiety attacks. Well, my doctor put me on effexor XR a few months ago and I've gradually increased my dosage and I'm just about to go up to 150mg and let me tell you I feel great. Just great. Please, despite the bad stuff you hear about effexor, try it if you haven't already. I didn't even know I had anxiety, but now I know that's what it was. I feel just about 100% and despite very mild side effects (sweating, flu like symptoms for a few days after upping dosage) I feel fine. Hopefully it keeps working for me! Good luck everyone!

Re: Hey everyone, good news inside!

I've been on Zoloft for 6 months also slowly upping my dosage and I also feel a ton better than i used to. I can't say that I'm 100% how I used to be but I started school 2 days ago and it is SOOOOOOOOOO wonderful to go to class and have a good time instead of suffering like I did all last year. Congrats on the good news Jeffster!
