I couldn't handle the side effects of the Effexor so after 10 days my doctor switched me over to Cipralex which my body seems to have adapted to. I have been on that now for 10 days and have none of the side effects that I had with the Effexor. My doctor said that if had of stayed on the Effexor that the side effects would have diminished but I just couldn't take another day of naseau and twitching. Just my experience though.
Whats worse...... being depressed and anxious, or unable to hold a thought, edgy, tired, hyperactive, numb and so much more that this drug is doing. I am starting to think that there is no help in getting back to 'normality'.
