~New to Effexor Xr~ So Far So Good

Thanks Estera for starting this one.

 I am on 150mg Effexor Xr for anxiety to do with my Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Borderline Personality Dis. And I take 4 Seroquel per day for my suicide thoughts i live with. supposed to be taking 200 x2 daily of Epilim, but im terribly slack at the moment.

So far its been a huge help, im alot more at ease for sure. Miss the odd day and for sure you suffer for it.  those side effects being feeling very ill, disorientated, dizzy.   Yeah will suck to come off one day.   But cannt see that happening for many more years to come.

Take such gentle care of yourselves.  

Our future is greater than our past.

Hey there, I too am on Efexor XR Im down to 75mg a day, plus the xanax. I know what you mean about missing a day, I get dizzy and have what I can only describe as little electrical shocks that run through my body. I feel good being on them and I will probably be on them for the rest of my life.
