effexor

Avatar n tn The reason I'm switching to Klonipin is that I feel that Xanax XR is not working well anymore for me. I take Effexor XR for depression and anxiety, and I also take Lyrica for headaches and anxiety as well. So, you can see, I'm a mess as far as anxiety issues go! Can you shed some light on Xanax XR vs plain old Xanax? Thanks so much!
Avatar n tn Can anyone give me an idea of how long it usually takes for your metabolism to recalibrate after stopping Effexor and/or Lexapro? I've gained significant weight while on these drugs (despite an intense exercise program and careful diet). My nutritionist and MD told me that the drugs likely altered my metabolism, but no one can tell me how long it will take to correct that. Most frustrating, I've noticed that since I stopped taking both, my weight gain has accelerated.
622511 tn?1373575103 Hello Dr.
Avatar m tn In the end we did end up changing the meds - as I recall, I was then on Provigil for a short time and then Cymbalta. I was on Cymbalta for a couple years but went off of that about 9 months ago and have NOT BEEN ON ANY anti-depressants since.
Avatar n tn I learned quite a bit about my own condition after 14 years of the onset of MVP, PVC's and breakthrough PSVT. Of source, I don't want to bore you with my problems. I just figure that like other forums and sites I've been to, especially,when this all started in 1992, I learned quite a bit from many others afflicted with the same issue(s). I also learned much about my own condition over the years and I also am no doctor by any stretch of the imagination either.
724811 tn?1291434386 I am on Pristiq (the new Effexor) and have not painted since starting the med a few years ago. Recently I set up all the things I need to paint, but I have no motivation to create. I have started to slowly mean myself off Pristiq and will be seeing my psychiatrist tomorrow to discuss. I have no sex drive and feel numb. Are these feeling due to what I am going thru in my life (divorce, losing most of my pets, moving, losing my condo, owing money)? Or is it a side affect of antidepressants?
Avatar n tn I have been on effexor for about a year-started on 75mg and now taking max dose of 225mg. I gained 59 lbs since being on the pills and now I am curious if this could be related. I am retaining a TON of water weight (pitting edema) I started the B6/B12 combo shots Monday and 3000mg of Vitamin C..I go today to get weighed. I did feel a burst of energy after the first shot, also difficulty sleeping...anyone have any of these experiences?
20003388 tn?1515169640 My doc just increased my prozac to 40 mg and swapped my cymbalta for effexor and it has already made a difference. I hope I wasn't coming off as an ***. I just didn't fully agree with some of your statements but I think maybe I was misunderstanding the point you were trying to make.

Because I am always finding new or innovations in either medicines and treatment options.
Avatar f tn Yeah.. I know. I was embarrassed almost as soon as I hit "Post Comment". Some forums have the ability to delete your own posts and I was fervently wishing this was one of them. Maybe I should have journalled that one where nobody could see it. It's really not like me on the whole to whine and complain but there it is in black and white.

Avatar n tn I just wanted to say that for the last 3-4 days, i have been extremely dizzy, nausous, diahrrea just wont stop, and chills really bad. I have read the forums and i am on effexor, have been for a long time, and trust me it doesnt help these symptoms. I am really worried. I dont eat alot of wheat and i know that i dont drink that much milk. I have a doctor's appt today, so if i find out anything i will let everyone know.
Avatar n tn I also take effexor and trazadone for depression, but I am so depressed right now. Hydrocodone, believe it or not has helped my depression and has given me something to look forward to. This site has helped, knowing other people go through the same thing. Hydrocodone has become my reason to live. I know this has to change.
