Luciafrancesca Posted December 16, 2009 Share Posted December 16, 2009 I took Effexor for 3 years, during which my drinking significantly increased as well as my tolerance. I'm 5'6" and 117 lbs, it was unbelievable the amount I could consume in a night. I went from drinking about 2-3 times a month to going out and getting trashed 2-3 times a week. A typical night out prior to taking Effexor might consist of four drinks which would make me pretty tipsy. A typical night out while I was taking Effexor would consist of about 15 or so drinks. My behavior also changed, I became very wild, out of control and very angry. In July of this year I was undergoing ECT and went out drinking one night. I awoke the next morning in jail. In one night I racked up 9 charges. The most serious charges are DUI, resisting arrest and aggrevated menacing. I have no memory of the night due to the alcohol and ECT. I had NEVER been arrested before. I am a married stay at home mom and I had never behaved like that before the Effexor. I am about to go to court soon for all of the charges and I just wanted to see if anyone else has had any of these reactions to Effexor. Any and all replies would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Luciafrancesca Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
