Last week I was taking 37.5 effexor, no problems. Felt better almost emmediately. Only minimal side effects (hot flashes and night swaets, tremors, blurred vision and a little uncordinated) BUT I was having those anyway, before the effexor. Yesterday I stared 75mg, and ugh, my stomach is a mess! Bloating, belching, headache and had very weird dream lastnight. Also, reading all the bad experiences with withdrawal, I wonder if I should get off it NOW before its too late? Thoughts?
I was switched from Zoloft to Effexor xr. I got the weird dreams too. I'm on prozac now. I would talk to your Dr. first and let them know your side effects. I was on the highest dose I was passing out and sleeping all the time. There is a difference between Effexor and Effexor XR. I had no problems with the Effexor but I kept forgetting to take the morning dose.
