I just went off it. My highest dose was 150mg and I guess I went manic. We tapered down to 37.5, now nothing except Lamictal but I am soo God**** depressed...

Effexor was the only thing to get me out of the blackness of despair.

Hope that helps..

how long have you been on it? Most meds suck when you first start them. It's best to give everything 4-6 weeks if you can.

I took Effexor for a grand total of 2 days. I couldn't handle it...it made me sleep way less, made me way more irritable, made my reactions to everything more severe, gave me a horrendous headache...I called my doctor's office the third morning and they had me stop, thank God.

So while I agree it's best to give meds time, I will tell you firsthand that sometimes you just can't do a med and should get off it ASAP.

I can't believe I am typing this... But there are three mental meds I will never take again, and effexor was one of them. The other two I gave a month try, but I only lasted 1 week on effexor. I had an unusual reaction, so I do understand

The need for a interrupted trial period.

You may want to read the patient information sheet that came with your delpin. It's not a first-line AD for a reason.
