The Dr. put me on it for my performance anxiety and depression.

Any one here on it? Has it helped? I just started taking it. I pray it helps me! I can't live like this.:(

I took it. After a while I wanted to try a different medicine and coming off effexor was absolutely terrible.

It made me suicidal, but that was years and years ago before it had been proven that some antidepressants may increase the suicide risk for teens.

I was on it many years ago and it made me have horrible bruxism. Also, cheese tasted really bad while I was on it. I stopped taking it.

I take it, it helps a lot.

Downsides... You HAVE to take it at the same time everyday. Getting off of it is unpleasant.

Tremendously! I actually went to the Dr. begging for help because I felt like I wanted to kill people! I’ve been on it maybe a year now, and I absolutely love the new me. Don’t miss a dose though, you will have some crazy ass dreams!

It has some sexual side effects and I know coming off of it is pure hell but honestly it's helped me so much, severe depression and Bipolar 1, that I'm whiling to take the side effects.
