Can I take Effexor in place of Lexapro? 75 MG
I found effexor gave me terrible stomach pains for weeks that I had to get used to.Then I was extremely tired and craved carbs. When I take lexapro I just feel like I am happy, healthy and not at all drugged out. But, that is me. Coming off effexor was also awful. The brain zings lasted quite awhile.
Effexor works very well for me. It has side effects, while starting up, and when stopping. If the change is purely affordability, then rather consider a generic of your current med.
Changes of medications should be your last resort. Always consult your doctor too. All the best.
