i am taking effexor 75mgs twice a day and seoquel at bedtime. i have been on the effexor for a little over three weeks now and well i know it has helped some because my depression and derealization was so bad that i was setting on my porch swing burning myself with cigarettes just to feel real,i am just very moody and i can tell now that my sex drive is gone, I get very angry over things,simple things. but it's hard to weigh out if it's all side effects from the medicine or not. i hope it works well for you and WELCOME!
