It is unfortunate that even though Effexor has been helpful in treating your anxiety and depression, it is causing intolerable side effects
. It is difficult to tell if these side effects
will go away or not. The dose of Effexor
may be reduced, or another medication such as Wellbutrin can be added to diminish sexual side effects. Alternative medications with lower risks of sexual side effects (such as Serzone, Remeron, or Wellbutrin) may also be considered.
