Effexor XR and Severe Constipation
I have been on Effexor XR for about 6 years.  About 4 years ago my mother was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer and I went from 75mg to 150mg. I have had the night sweats, and "zaps" when I do not take it at the same time every day.  I did try and taper off a few months ago but had a MAJOR anxiety attack. so I went back up to 150mg.  About 2 years ago I began to have severe constipation.  I have had several colonoscopies, ct scans, cits marker testing.  I think my meds are the cause but not sure what to do. I have tried other meds in the past but Effexor works wonders.....I am afraid to come off it....but I am tired of the constipation.  HELP!!!
