Cipralex vs Effexor
1394views
I was first treated with Cipralex, for Depression NOS, but it made me numb/depressed after 3 weeks. I eventually self-diagnosed with cylothymic disorder and my new pdoc has me on Effexor. It has almost instantly knocked out my ptsd. There are usually a couple days of exhaustion and restlessness when raising dosage. Despairing thoughts no longer frequent the mind. Course of treatment -1 year.

In praise of Effexor - wonder of wonders
This drug is horrible. It gave me a headache everyday for 6 weeks. I went off of it, and was extremely ill. I couldn't even get out of bed one of the days....sharp head pains, vomiting, diarrhea, nausea. DO NOT take this medication until you learn the withdrawal symptoms. Easing off of it slowly just prolongs the agony.

I concur wholeheartedly! "SO, don’t criticize Effexor because it didn’t give you what you were looking to get – embrace it because it takes you to a better place that you never knew existed. But you have to want to go there, to find your true self." Well said. By-the-by; I was recently rx'd a serotonin making drug called amyltriptaline- poof; brain favors it truly. Utopia might be some Mu receptors and Celebrex; then no unnecessary toil on my brain nor being nor spirit. Ah, but such is lif

I was on high dose effexor and also "lost" several years. I simply STOPPED taking this drug, and with the help/love/understanding of my wonderful lady, I have (so far) been able to function without it. For the first time in a long while, I am aware of what I am doing. It has been five LONG months, but..... I CAN DO IT!!

I can totally empathise with you I feel exactly the same - I am suffering from Anxiety & Depression have been taking venlafaxine and flupentixol for years and although I am much worse without the meds I still manage to embarrass myself on a regular basis to the point my eldest son is ashamed of me and doesn't care about me anymore. I worry constantly that the rest of my family will soon decide I am not good enough for them also and they will start to look down at me and decide to disown me, too

I understand what you are saying and how you feel. I think my son cares as well as a few other people but they are just tired of hearing it. I know I am and I'll bet you are too. I don't have any magic words. I wish I did.
