  • Joint pain/depression/thinking unclear
    I've been on Effexor 75mg. for 8 month's and recently have been decreasing this amount so that I can safely stop taking this all together. I believe that in the beginning month's of taking it, it had helped with my hot-flashes and anxiety. A few month's ago I've noticed that it isn't helping my anxiety but has added a few more problem's as well. I now have bad swelling in my finger's with bumps on top of the joints. Also, crying, depressing, and lack of interest. The muscle's in my arm's ache. I can't concentrate at work which is very embarrassing.
    My plan is to decrease amount of this medicine and go completley off. So far, I've been taking 37.5 mg. for a week and seem's withdrawal symptom's are not so bad as of yet. Hopefully, in a few more wks. I will be completely off of it.
    I have decided to invest in Herbal remedie's instead. I have never had a problem with all-natural before. As for the hot flashes I will use Black Cohosh. I will also use natural herb's for anxiety. I am really doing my research. I believe that the all-natural route is better than the synthetic med. because there are way too many bad side effect's.
    Another thing I didn't mention was the weight gain from Effexor. I sure hope I lose the weight that I gained! That also add's to the depression.
  • Effexor lets me down after 20 years
    I dropped Effexor for 5 months. Had a depressive episode and went back to it. It blew me away this time around. I'd lost 20 pounds and was exercising a lot. I went back to 37 g and was doing okay although I hated taking it. The side effects: food tasting bad, no sleep, and no sexual desire was making me sad. Anyway, I accidently took 150 and it was very hard. I felt like a zombie and couldn't eat. The next day I took 37 and was okay. I have experienced a lot of anxiety and that seemed to help a little. The next day I took 75, and went hypomaniac. I had to walk around the block 5 times to calm down. The next day without anything I had to take a spinning class, swim, and lift weights to calm down. Followed was 3 horrible days of drug withdrawal. Today, I've been hanging in for most of the day although I had some bad anxiety this morning and afternoon. I am sitting her forcing myself to watch TV. My life has been a living hell for 3 weeks, and all the doctor told me to do is take more of this poison, but at a lower dose.
  • Fructose malabsorption symptoms become wore with effexor
    I took Venlafaxine for several years. During that time I was diagnosed with Fructose Malabsorption (FM), something I suspect that I have had for years already. For a period of two years I switched medication and took some other SSRIs instead of Venlafaxine and then returned to Venlafaxine and found that my FM symptoms right away increased/returned. When I came off of Venlafaxine I noticed that my FM symptoms became easier to manage but going back on Venlafaxine has confirm that it does indeed cause greater IBS and FM symptoms.
  • Weight migain with phentermine
    I took Phentermine in 1990. At the time I only had about 20 pounds to lose. I actually lost 30. When I stopped taking it, it was like someone opened a "fat door". The weight started coming back even though I did everything exactly the same as when I was on the drug. In six months I had gained 120 pounds. To this day, I cannot get it off no matter what I do. I have been called a liar by several doctors, and have tried every diet known to man. In addition I spend three years with a personal trainer. Nothing has worked.
  • Effexor near death experience
    In 1999 I was prescribed 75mg time release Effexor. I took one pill and 4 hours later I became dizzy and it felt like a cold patch in the middle of my head. I ckecked my eyes as i started seeing too much light, my puples were dilated, all black. I managed to get up stairs and asked my mom to get me to hospital. I passed out, and as crazy as it sounds I had a vision of my nana. I knew I was gone.she told me to wake up. I wasn't breathing. I could hear my mom talking on the phone to 911saying I had no pulse. (She is an RN) the ambulance came and they couldn't find my blood pressure. I couldn't see very well. The ER doctors said to continue taking the meds and sent my home. I stopped taking the Effexor. I had the side effects for many months. I get aura migraines now and have extreme sensitivity to other drugs.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (7 months ago):

  • I have had these symptoms when I have gone 3-4 days off of the phentermine. I have had other symptoms when I forgot to take my venlafaxine but those are surely from not taking them because after taking them I feel those symptoms dissappear shortly thereafter.

  • From this study (11 months ago):

  • I have gone to the ENT and had a brain MRI. It was clear. Hearing test showed that I have hearing loss in the very high pitch sounds, but she said there is no way of knowing that the loss could have occurred years ago. She thought it could be from teeth clenching. She found white lines on the inside of both my cheeks. But I think I've been doing that for a long time as well.

    Lately I found my Effexor Xr hasn't been very effective. It's like I'm not taking anything.
