My love/hate thing with Effexor XR


Recommended Posts

So far Effexor XR is the only only thing that comes even close to dealing with my frantic depression and suicidal episodes. I've tried Prozac (gave me convulsions) Welbutrin, Paxil...yadda yadda.......so here I am back on the big E again... Dear God, I hope that I can take it for life, withdrawals are pure hell

What drives me the most barking mad is that as long as I take the drug, I hallucinate sounds like mad. Phantom music, weird animal sounds, two men talking in low voices...all of these phantom sounds. I already see and hear things sometimes anyway, but the phantom music weirds me out the most for what ever reason 

As if I needed any help with my darling ittle psycho brain poots

And then there are the ever so loverly sweats...

Just wanted to rant a wee bit

adding some Seroquel to the mix might just do the trick.  as tom said, those sound like minor psychotic episodes.  at the right dose, the seroquel might help quiet the noise.  i'm on effexor 300mg (for the last 9 months) and seroquel.  i've always had sound hallucinations as far back as i can remember.  but i haven't had even one episode since the seroquel.  might be worth a shot.
