Effexor reaction

4 posts in this topic

I tried taking Effexor but had bad side effects and stopped taking it after just a few days. The last pill I took was Sunday evening. My symptoms have been so much worse then normal and I am scared it caused permanent progression of the disease. Have you heard of a problem like this with other patients?

I doubt permanent damage, but call your immediately. The worst I have seen over the years is nausea and blood pressure issues, but most people tolerate well.

Thank you - I called my dr last week but he wasn't in. The nurse call me back to say stop taking the drug (I had said in my message that I had stopped) and they gave me an appointment for APRIL. Thankfully, You were right it took a few days but I am feeling like myself again.
