Started Effexor And Feeling Good

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

As you may or may not know I've struggled to find a med that works since going off aropax. Zoloft didn't feel like it helped.

I've been on Effexor only 3 days and I feel pretty good. I've heard of people feeling good almost immeditaley, but that it only lasts for a few days and they then crash.

I wouldn't say I feel Euphoric by any means, or that all my symptoms of anxiety have disappeared. I'm just feeling quite relaxed and happier.

I really hope this feeling lasts and this is the right med for me.

Suprisingly I haven't experienced many side effects yet. On zoloft and aropax I was really quesy and had rough sleep patterns, and the effects took weeks and weeks to subside. My anxiety is up a little at times, and my mouth is dry, but I'm not really bothered by that.

I only came off zoloft saturday so maybe I still have some sertraline in my blood and tht's helping me feel good.

I'll keep you all updated and if I keep feeling good like this I will be able to post a success story.

Here's hoping :hearts:

wow, I thought effexor shouldnt be given under 18, because it increases suicidal thoughts. I think its wrong in general to give medication to such young people.

a 12 year old on effexor?they are not supposed to be used in under 18's,the only AD approved for under 18's is fluoxetine,i thought?surely its wrong to mess with the brain wiring of a child who is most likely going through puberty?
