I have completely interest in everything and been staying home most of the time. I have been on Effexor for over a week. I want my life back.
Hi, Imagine! Yes, it should. Not every medication works for every individual, but I LOVE Effexor and what it does for my outlook on life!
Be patient and give it some time as it can take 4-6 weeks to reach full benefits although you'll start seeing improvement everyday.
I have found the Effexor to be very helpful, I do still have days when I have trouble doing anything but I am also on pain management from a severe car accident in 2014, being hit by an F350 crossing a street in 2005, and I am also a breast cancer survivor. I had bilateral mastectomies plus extensive chemo and radiation in 2008 as well as as a 3 year regimen of Zometa. I take methadone and oxycodone for chronic pain. I just recovered from a bout with shingles on left side of my face, to be exact my forehead, eye, part if my ear and top of my head. So now I also take 1200mg of gabapentin as I have what hopefully is not going to be permanent nerve damage. So, I believe without the Effexor my life would not be manageable at all. I began taking it when I had cancer, stopped for a fee years and after the car accident I eventually began taking it again and the results have been very effective. Give it a chance.
