legs Posted July 14, 2009 Share Posted July 14, 2009 Has anyone had any? I've read so many horrible things about it- and I watched my ex go from doing okay on it to being totally nuts on it and then having the toughest withdrawal I've ever seen- and I'd love to hear if anyone has had even a remotely good experience on it. It's kind of a last ditch effort on the part of my doctor. I've done paxil, zoloft, trazodone, and pamelor, none of which did a particularly good job. I was also on Wellbutrin, which was beautiful and helped me for years and gave me no side effects and then it pooped out and started making me angry while it stopped making me happy. I was on Pristiq about a month ago- after a day the side effects started, and by the third day they were so bad that I couldn't sit upright or keep my mouth closed or walk without support or sleep or eat (let alone drive or make phone calls or run errands.) Anyway my doc feels that Efexor will be better than the Pristiq because he can start me off slower (he's having me begin by taking out half the balls in the 37.5 dose for a week and then moving up slowly from there.) So please! Someone. Anyone? Anything good from Efexor? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
