side effects of effexor

good morning, i have been on effexor for about 3-4 weeks now for anxiety and panic attacks. i think it has helped greatly but i am having terrible heartburn which i never have. i have acid reflux but have lpr. the hearburn is just killing me. i was wondering if anyone else had this side effect from effoxor and if so will it go away? also, starting this past week, i have had daily migraines. i might get one a month, anyone else have this? i just do not know what to do. I think i cannot take this med and need something different.

Re: side effects of effexor

I don't have acid reflux, but I can tell you that I had stomach issues for several weeks with each dosage increase. If it is helping you greatly, I wouldn't give it up unless time or/and remedies fail to resolve it. A good med is hard to find! The stomach issues are gone, for me! Good luck!
