Ive been put on effexor xr for generalised anxiety disorder four weeks ago. For the past week and a half ive had dull breast pain in my left breast only. I dont usually get any breast pain and im just thirty years old. It is less than a week to my period now, and ive felt around for lumps and dont feel anything unusual, so i was wondering does anyone know or has anyone experienced breast pain in one or both breasts due to taking this medication?
Breast pain can be triggered by your period due to hormones. I've taken Effexor with no problems, but what one experiences on this medication may not be another's. You should contact your doctor and ask about this, and if need be see your OB-GYN. He/she can check your breast more thoroughly and explain why you are feeling this pain. Take care.
