I've been on Effexor for about 7 years and was recently diagnosed w/having Thyroid cysts, but need to go to an EMT for an ultrasound to figure out if malignant or benign. Cysts discovered after neck X-ray from a whip lash accident a few months ago and have had zero pain UNTIL last few days which was about 1.5 wks after my discontinuation of Effexor. Searching the net is leaving me wishing I hadn't for every answer is different and not what I actually desire to discover. Oh...I am also extremely irritated lately, but that could be from the d/c or thyroid!
My question is...I am uninsured, which is why I haven't gotten the ultrasound yet and wonder if there is any way to find a study that I could participate in for an Effexor/thyroid link or any other way to get a check on the things that I'll need now that I'm experiencing some rather uncomfortable pain from this?!
I looked up Effexor in my PDR and thyroid complications are not listed. I would say they are unrelated. As for a study... most studies are done to test a new drug or a new use of a drug. It is extremely unlikely that any study is being done on cysts on thyroid. Perhaps you can go to a free clinic for help.
