I started Effexor XR 75mg 2 weeks ago to wean off Pristiq 50mg. Ever since I started taking it, I've been extremely tired with no energy or motivation, and my appetite has markedly increased. Is this typical for this medication? I know it's only been 2 weeks, but it seems to be getting worse.
I have been on Effexor XR for 3 weeks and still have no motivation or energy. My appetite decreased due to nausea. I am going to try to stay with it for 6 weeks with the hope that it will get better. You may try to stay with it for a couple of more weeks. I can relate, this is hard to do.
Hope it gets better for both of us soon :)
