Does Effexor takeaway motivation?

Hi, Catherine! Some people report feeling unusually tired or weak when they start Effexor, but lack of motivation sounds more like a symptom of depression.
How long have you been taking it and at what dosage?
Be sure to tell your doctor exactly how you're feeling; you might benefit from a dosage change, the addition of a drug like Abilify to *booster* the Effexor, or even trying a different antidepressant.
Good luck! WCV

I took Effexor for a long time, but did not suffer from lack of motivation. Could be a symptom of your depression like WildcatVet says. However, different people react differently to the same drug. It may be a side effect of the Effexor. Hope your doctor can help free discount card
