Guest montyface Posted June 2, 2006 Share Posted June 2, 2006 I am on 75mg of effexor going on about 6 weeks or so, not feeling awful or great, just about the same if I wasn't taking anything. MAYBE a bit less anxious sometimes but in general around the same, however sometimes it seems to make me feel a bit more anxious? Does that sound normal? My hand shaky crap I got from prozac still pops up here or there, more so if I use my albuterol or have caffeine. But it isn't as bad. I think I gained a couple pds at first on the effex but I am working on controlling my hunger more and also trying to get more walking and yard work exercise in. I think I need to go up in my dose as the 75mg is not helping much with anxiety, the ocd type crap, my shity memory - losing stuff, forgetting why I went into a room, the adhd type symptoms I have. The only positive thing so far is it is NOT making me tired like the zoloft, lexapro, prozac, or other ssri's. Sometimes it winds me up a bit but that anxious type feeling like I get when I have an anxiety attack isn't there. However, I still get the anxiety attacks if that makes sense. So about my normal energy with a very small dwindle in the anxiety feeling. So I want more of the energy feeling, less of the anxiety and obsessive thinking. Got anything for that??
