Just started taking name brand effexor xr today. Hope to be able to tell a difference in side effects with the name brand instead of generic. Just wondering what kind of changes I should expect and how long it will take to notice the difference? Have had severe sweating with generic. Otherwise I have been happy with the generic.
I'm not sure what dosage you are taking but everybody does respond differently as you hope you will to. I have always been on the name brand and have experienced the sweating, and withdrawal symptoms when I don't take it at the same time everyday. I will say that you may feel the different in a few weeks. Some people are more sensitive and may experience a difference quicker. Search within this forum if someone else has asked about side affects after switching. Good luck.
Hi, tim! If you've been taking the generic I wouldn't suspect you'd experience any real difference at all. Possibly a somewhat *smoother* ride as the inert and inactive ingredients aren't as likely to change as with generics from one batch to the next.
Best wishes and Happy Holidays!! WCV
