Anyone else experienced this?
Hi, Blossom! In clinical trials about 35 ~ 40% of patients taking Effexor experienced nausea and 6% vomitted. They are the most common side effect when starting Effexor. As long as there was at least an hour interval your body would have already absorbed the drug.
You could try OTC remedies such as Dramamine or meclizine to prevent this happening again or phone up your doctor if it continues but generally these side effects resolve on their own in several days to a week or so.
Best wishes, Wildcat
