I switched from Effexor to generic Venlafaxine a few months ago and I haven't noticed any difference. But everyone is unique in their reactions to these drugs and you should tell your doc if you feel there is a big difference.

I have! At first for awhile I felt really dizzy with brain shocks (or whatever they're called) and have started feeling more irritable and sensitive. Is this how you have felt? Almost like withdraws, like its not as strong or something..
