Question by Girl: Effexor…?
If you’ve tried Effexor, what were (or are) you on it for and what’s your reaction to it? I know everyone has different results; I’m just looking for personal accounts of being on it. Thanks.

Answer by Serialmom12
I was on effexor for anxiety and depression for about 2 years. It was great, but then it just stopped working. I made the mistake of going off it cold turkey….BIG MISTAKE. It was like going thru Heroin withdrawl, I was sweating, shaking, vomiting and thought I was having a heart attack or stroke, severe heart palpitations. I had to back on it and wean myself off of it.
Now I take wellbutrin and lexapro….perfect combo for me, no weight gain (I gained 60 lbs in 6 months on zoloft,) and if I have a severe anxiety attack, which thank God doesn’t happen all that often, I have ativan or xanex to keep it in check.
