I have been taking this for 2 weeks

The doc said it would settle me down. That I wouldn't be high or low .......just in the middle somewhere........it would make the lows controlable.

Well I am as high as a kite..........like off my head..........the wife wants to know what drugs I'm on...I am bouncing off walls .

The lows's are still pretty bad when I'm down there...OK ..... probably worse than bad but you know what mean.

Any opinions?

Anyone had any experience with Effexor?

I took it for acouple of months. It made me reaaaaaally agitated. They switched me to something else and then I refused to take anything anymore.

I have several friends who say that it makes them feel better. Just wasn't for me.

I'm on it and it's been fantastic for me. It didn't bring me quite high, but it did get me nice and playful for a while there (even more than normal). It can take 4-6 weeks for your body to adjust to it and during this time you can expect some funny things to happen, including having your depression get worse (that happened to me). Once you adjust, though, it's actually a really good drug for most people. It doesn't work for everyone, and like any antidepressant, it will react with everyone a little differently, but studies have shown it to have a very low incidence of side effects and a very good rate of success. Give it some time and see how how you feel in a month or so.

What kind of dose are you on? Has your doctor put you on a gradually increasing dose, or did he/she just start you straight off on what you're on now?

i agree with penismightier (interesting screen name by the way haha).. i'm on effexor, and love it..but i'm also on lamictal. for a while, effexor made me agitated also..then they took me off, put me on lamictal, and eventually put me back on..and it helps me A LOT.

as the before post asked, did they just put you straight on it or a gradually increasing dose? that could make a big difference. different peoples' bodies respond differently to different medications, obviously.

maybe this just isn't for you. talk to your doctor..i know mine always helps me.

anything i can do to help? let me know.
