I went home and typed in EFFEXOR and shortness of breath and thank God I did because there were many sites addressing this issue. I called my MHFNP back on Friday to try and advise her I saw this on the internet.
Avatar n tn I have glaucoma and have had a trab., the fluid seems to be draining well but the pressure continues to be elevated. I have had to restart drops to decrease the pressure. My question is: does Effexor XR cause there to be an increase in eye pressure? I seem to recall having read that but cannot find any information at this time. If it is not the medication causing an increase in pressure what could be the cause? This is both eyes having had trabs and both with elevated pressure.

Weight gain being one of them, as weight gain is a problem anyway with HypoT, memory problems among others.

Avatar n tn I have been to about 30 doctors- including ENT's allergists, neurologists, chiropracters, opthamologists. psychologists, dentists and everything else u can think of. All CT scans, MRI of brain and blood work keep coming back clean and ok. Nothing I try seems to work. There was a period of time about 3 and a half years ago that the symptoms lifted for about 4 months and then it returned full force.

Avatar n tn I was using it after the loss of my sister and my uterus. I went off Effexor and went on Topomax and I've lost 30 lbs. I lost my appetite at first (good riddance) and had a minimal amount of tingling in my fingertips, but this stuff has been great. The headaches have improved and I can't wait until the FDA officially approves it for weight loss. So what if the soda tastes bad. Who needs it.
