Depression board

I have been on 75 mg. of Effexor XR for three weeks now, and I sincerely believe that it is helping me. Most of the initial side effects have worn off. I have a little bit of trouble focusing on things, but that comes with the depression too, so I can deal with it. I also don't have an appetite or a very high level of physical intimacy. But I have stopped my day-long crying spells. My social anxiety, and overall general anxiety has subsided tremendously as far as physical symptoms go, which helps give me a more positive outlook about my therapy and life in general.

Maybe I am just fortunate to have found a drug that cooperates with my body. I, too, am scared of the withdrawal symptoms that lay ahead in my future. I had bad luck withdrawing from Paxil. But right, now, things are looking up for me.

Good Luck to everyone else.
