Depression board

Be careful... when I started Effexor XR I tried telling people I only wanted positive comments but it didn't work. I have been on 75mg of Effexor XR for over 4 months now and it's the only antidepressant that has ever worked for me. It started working fully within about a week. I assume you'll start out on 37.5mg for the first two weeks so that it doesn't do a number on your stomach. I have had pretty much no side effects with this drug. My suggestion to you is to not concern yourself with other threads on effexor, especially the withdrawal ones. Worry about that when the time comes. And you don't want to psychologically give yourself symptoms on this drug you don't really have. It's so different for everyone and hopefully it will work for you too! I've been on Celexa and Zoloft and neither worked but Effexor XR does.

Good luck!
