Reviews for Effexor to treat Postpartum Depression

Review by Annonymous:

User Rating:  

I've been on and off Effexor since 2004. Mostly taken for post partum depression. I also have BPD and used it for only 6mths. I found that Effexor made me numb. It makes sense in the beginning but I want to learn how to deal with my emotions and after about six months I start getting withdrawal symptoms because it is no longer working, even though I take as perscribed. That is what I hate the most the withdrawal symptoms are horrible. I found working out aggressively like at least 1.5hrs a day gives me better results than this. It took two weeks for the withdrawal symptoms to subside and I was on the lowest dose.
