  • I'm on Effexor XR 75 mg and it works WONDERS for me. I have no side effects, except for bad dreams if I miss a pill.

    I took Wellbutrin which made me very crabby.

  • I'm on Lexapro, which is fantastic. I took Zoloft for awhile but it made me feel a bit zombie-ish. Good luck!

  • I take Effexor also. But I take 150mg per day. The highest dose they recommend is 225mg, but I do fine on 150. I haven't had any side effects either (especially worried about the sex-drive thing and NOPE!!!)

  • I have been on Zoloft (which made me feel like I was crazy). Then I was on Lexapro (that didnt help me!). Right now I am on Effexor XR. I take 150mg 2x a day...so 300mg/day! It really helps. The only side effect I have had was I had a loss of appetite. :)
