I just discontinued taking Effexor
XR and it was the most difficult and painful thing I have ever done! The side effects
for me were: increased depression, confusion, dizziness, diarrhea, nausea, and on and on and on...
I am so angry that the drug company (Wyeth) and the doctor didn't know what I was talking about! How can they not know? They do clinical trials.
Just ridiculous! I signed the petition to have it reviewed by the FDA (I was about # 4,500, so I know I'm not alone).
