I was a pretty calm and relaxed person until I started omeprazole which after taking it for about 2 weeks,I didn't realize that I was stressing and having anxiety due to this drug. but it kept taking it . I got worse and worse every time I tried to do something I would get terrible anxiety and depression and frustration and then I realized that there must be something about this drug that was causing it and I quit taking it. I felt a definite difference when I quit taking it I was not quite so stressed didn't have anxiety I'm still withdrawing from it but I feel like I'm a whole lot better than I would not recommend this to anyone

- 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.
- 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.
