So Far...I have been on Effexor for one week now. I am taking it for depression and social anxiety. For the first few days I kept telling my husband that I felt like I had the flu (headache, nausea, chills). Now the "flu feeling" has improved. I do, however, feel spacey, tired, and shaky. I am supposed to double the dosage starting tomorrow. The doctor said it will take several weeks for it to help the depression and anxiety. I am hoping that if I ride out these side effects my body will adjust to the drug.
